Purchased our home 3 years ago (it was a foreclosure), we never signed any paperwork or agreements regarding the HOA during our closing or at any other time. When we first moved into our home we went to a meeting when we found out there was a HOA and paid dues that one time. But the HOA is not doing anything productive in our community. The only thing I am aware that the HOA does is maintain the median (has grass). The local parish was cutting it for free before. The HOA is now threatening to place a lien on our home due to unpaid dues.
