Homeowner Was ‘Jointly and Severally’ Liable with Renter to Pay Assessment

Facts: Twenty-eight of the more than 1,000 units in a community were purchased by one homeowner. The homeowner leased the units to renters. The homeowner claimed that the renters were responsible for paying the monthly assessments for their respective units. For several years, monthly assessments weren’t submitted by the majority of the homeowner’s units. The monthly assessments were $35 when the homeowner purchased his units; they were increased to $45 and then $50 by the board of directors over the course of several years.
