Received summons from home owner's association

Ask a Lawyer

Question

Country: United States of America
State: Indiana

We've just received a summons from our home owner's association's attorney seeing us for unpaid dues. We did not receive anything from them as a bill. We have had past issues with mail not coming through and complained to the Post Office. Does this make a difference in how we should handle this situation. We do not dispute that we owe the dues, we just didn't receive a bill. They are now asking for this year's dues, next years dues and $250 in court costs, attorney fees, and other proper relief.

Answer

If you call and pay they normally will drop the suit.
