If the HOA Sues You

If the association has failed to perform an obligation of theirs, it does not negate your requirement to pay dues. The homeowner must continue to pay dues while pursuing a separate path to remedy any greivances with their association.

If you are behind in your dues to a homeowners association, you are better off arranging a payment plan with them. A homeowner cannot win either a superior court case or a small claims case brought by their association. The CC&Rs of your homeowners association govern the collection of these dues, and it is ironclad in favor of the association over the individual homeowner.
