I bought a condo and the next day found out about an assessment that may be assessed to homeowners due to mismanaged funds by the HOA. I'm pretty sure I can prove that the seller knew about the possible assessment before he sold me the condo yet he failed to inform me. He, nor anyone else, knew what the amount of the assessment would be at that time but later, the assessment was due and it was in the amount of $1600. I have already paid it and I am looking for reimbursement. I am filling out paperwork for small claims court and need to know if, 1. he can be held responsible and 2. what do I need to make sure I have when I take him to court?
