As the treasurer I feel I should probably take some steps to protect theHOA, such as putting a lien on the property, but I am unclear as to whether the lien can just sit there guaranteeing that the HOA would bepaid in case the property is sold or foreclosed, but otherwise not forcingany action. That would be what we would prefer at this point. I'm not even sure who to ask this question of, so I'm starting here.
A lawyer who specializes in "common interest" law. We have one on retainer. She is very non-confrontational so don't be afraid of contacting a lawyer because they will cause a big storm or tell you not to talk to your neighbors.
I suspect they will just file the papers, or tell you how to do it yourself so the HOA is protected. In the states I've had experience with, the lien must be filed (not assumed) and has to be cleared before the house can be sold.
