My HOA Served Me With Legal Paper for Diliquent Fees, What are my Legal Rights?

What are my legal rights as a homeowner in regards to this situation? My HOA has served me with legal papers stating I’m being sued for HOA dilinquent fees, where at least 70% of the amount owed are attorney and legal fees? My husband and I each incurred major injuries since our last payment arrangement with the HOA that disallowed us to pay our bills due to no income.

This sounds like a situation that can’t be answered without looking at the previous agreement. HOAs typically have the right to impose fees, and to charge homeowners for costs of collection, but if you have a specific agreement with your HOA it would probably override the normal rules. You need to have someone review the agreement to be sure.
