How do you collect delinquent assessments?

There is no one answer – depending on the circumstances applicable to each collection account, different actions may be recommended. However, the following are some common steps in the process. Call us today at 248.644.4433 and ask us about our flat fees for assessment collection that we offer Michigan condominiums, HOAs and subdivisions.

Account Review

We review the account and the Association’s prior correspondence for compliance with applicable law and the governing documents.

Lien Recordation

We prepare a lien to secure payment of the amounts due in accordance with the governing documents, which is critical to preserve priority with respect to real estate transactions, refinancing, bankruptcy, estate, and other events that may occur.


Foreclosure may be necessary to recover delinquent assessments or at least effect a change in ownership so a new owner may begin paying assessments.

Do you have a collection policy?

An enforceable Delinquent Assessment Collection Procedure policy drafted in accordance with your governing documents and applicable state statute should form the basis from which you proceed in your collection efforts. The Meisner Law Group can work with the board of directors to review and revise your existing policy or prepare a new policy to ensure conformance to applicable law and best practices. Ask about our flat fees for new policies.
