He required professsional daily care and moved from the home in 10/13. I continued paying the homeowner association fees as I was his sole heir and trustee of his revocable trust. Following his death, the director of the association (a paid employee) told me I was responsible for the monthly dues until HUD took sole possession of the property I had immediately told HUD we wanted to "walk away" and provided them with all requested information. They have yet to take possession. The lender did not acknowledge any obligation to pay the dues. I was never an owner of the home, nor listed on any deed paperwork. In addition to the $210 monthly dues, I paid a $300 special assessment last year. Initially told I would not have to pay that, I received a letter requiring I do so. Have I been liable for these charges as trustee of the estate, or am I entitled to stop paying? I have not been able to vote on association business as I am not an owner in residence. If not liable, and the association will not voluntarily refund my payments would you recommend civil action on my part?
