Answer:

Hi Brenda,

In California, liens typically attach to your property automatically once you become delinquent. However, Civil Code ยง 5660 does require that written notice be sent to the homeowner at least 30 days before the association records the lien. Boards can also refer delinquent accounts to a third-party collection agency or a lawyer for collection. Make sure to check your governing documents for the exact procedures your board must follow when it comes to liens and third-party collections. Beyond that, it would help to consult an attorney.
