Owner Must Pay Assessments Required by PUD Covenants

Facts: A homeowner in a planned unit development (PUD) refused to pay the required assessments to the PUD. The owner sued the PUD seeking relief from the imposition of dues, fines, and liens filed by the PUD against her property and seeking damages for slander. The PUD sued the owner for unpaid assessments. A district court found that the PUD had the authority to impose assessments against the owner’s property and determined the exact amount owed. The owner appealed.

Decision: The appeals court upheld the lower court’s decision.
