Association Recorded Improper Lien on Townhouses
Facts: The owner of two townhouse units performed renovations that were not permissible under the association’s governing documents. The association charged the owner several thousand dollars in penalties and fines. When the owner didn’t pay, the association imposed a lien on the properties. The owner sued the association, alleging, among several other claims, that it had negligently placed an improper lien.
The association asked for a judgment in its favor without a trial. A trial court ruled in favor of the association. The owner appealed.
