BOYNTON BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) – Another South Florida homeowner learns that if you don’t pay your HOA dues – no matter how small – your HOA can take you home you. Francine Walker and Robin Ellman are the latest owners to discover that HOAs are serious and not optional in the land of fun and sun.

According to a lawsuit just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, Walker and Ellman own the home at 7317 Wailea Avenue in the Valencia Islands. The lawsuit says they haven’t paid HOA fees of approximately $675 per month since July 2021. When interest, fees, and other assessments are added, the total outstanding balance is now $7,267.15. This may seem like a small amount for an HOA to exclude, but it is not. HOA laws in Florida are clear – a homeowners association can attempt to collect what is owed to it if a homeowner fails to pay dues and fees assessed by the HOA’s board of directors.

The lawsuit was served on at least one of two homeowners who now apparently reside in Boca Falls – a community in west Boca Raton. The two are not listed as owners of the house where the summons was issued.

Valencia Isles Homeowners Association, Inc., is represented by attorney Robert Kaye of the Pompano Beach law firm Kaye Bender Rembaum. No response was immediately filed by Ms. Walker or Mr. Ellman.
