Manager Isn’t ‘Debt Collector’ When Pursuing Assessments
Facts: A homebuyer purchased his home, situated in a community association, by a warranty deed that had no reference to the association's declaration. The homeowner failed to pay dues and assessments imposed by the association—one of the obligations in its declaration.

Eventually, the association had its attorney send letters to the owner, attempting to collect the amounts owed.
