Failure to Read Covenant Not an Excuse for Shirking Assessments
Facts: A homeowners association alleged that a homeowner breached the covenant to pay assessments for common area maintenance and other services necessary to operate the community. He had unpaid dues totaling over $15,000. The homeowner contested the reasonableness of the charges. The association asked a trial court for a judgment in its favor without a trial.
Decision: A Pennsylvania trial court ruled in favor of the association.
