Association Not ‘Debt Collector’ When Pursuing Late Assessment

Facts: A condo association's manager discovered that it had failed to invoice the correct monthly dues for 10 months to the 36 members of the association. As a result of this billing error, there was an $8,521.50 shortfall. With the association's permission, the manager divided the total of $8,521.50 by the number of members, and tried to collect a one-time charge of $236.71 from each. A certain member had paid her monthly and quarterly assessments and dues in a timely manner until that point but refused to pay the assessment.
