If the parties don't inform the Title Company that there is an HOA, and if  
the title company doesn't do a thorough Title Search because the transfer is  
taking place between relatives, then things can get messy.  But yes, the  law 
is on our side in this matter.  Next step is a lien.

Isn't it  built into your CC&R's? Doesn't the title company handle it  
as  part of escrow/title transfer? That's how back HOA dues are  
handled,  and transfer fees in other condos, at least for property  
transfers  here in California. That way, there's no disputes, the $  
from the  sale proceeds goes directly to the group as a party to the  
transfer,  and never hits the seller's hands.

the Sonoma County (SF Bay Area/North) communities on  Saturday
