Association Must Follow Mortgage Foreclosure Rules
Facts: A condominium building association attempted to foreclose on two liens against a unit in the building. The liens were for unpaid common area charges. The unit owner asserted that the association was required to comply with a state property law, which requires that this type of action be carried out in the same manner as an action to foreclose on a mortgage. That is, a notice must be served with the summons and complaint.
