A 6D doesn't address payments to individuals, it addresses payments to a condo association. A 6D establishes limits on back dues and assessments and it would be very unwise to transact without one.

It sounds like you're the purchaser. Trust me when I say this: Get an attorney to help you, and have the attorney review the situation. Attempting to buy a post foreclosure condo without help, is a bad idea.

Do you want accurate, personalized, legal advice that you can rely on? You will have to hire an attorney, not ask on Avvo. I am not your attorney and am not creating an attorney-client relationship by this post. I am therefore giving only general advice. This advice may not apply to you or your situation; may not take account of all possibilities, and may not match the advice I would give to a client. DO NOT rely on this advice or any other advice on Avvo to make your legal decisions. If you want an answer to a legal question you should retain an attorney who is licensed in your state.


Your statement that nothing has been paid in the past to the other owner troubles me as you can not do this on your own. Either there is an obligation or not as described in the condo documents . Past practice is no guide- if the other owner paid bills because he did not want to spend the time needed to deal with a large inefficent bank does not mean you get a free ride. I think you need an attorney


A 6d certificate is necessary to show what the status of the outstanding condo fees are against a particular unit. As a buyer moving forward without obtaining a "clean" 6d certificate you are potentially opening yourself up to unnecessary liability. You should consult a lawyer before moving forward.
