Q. My condo just announced a huge assessment which I can’t afford. What can I do?
A. I’m sorry you’re struggling but if you can no longer afford to pay your condo obligations you should seriously think about selling. As a condo owner, assessments are evitable but unlike a mortgage payment which can be refinanced to lower it, assessments can not be re-worked. However it may be possible to work out a payment plan with your association if allowed. Another option would be to take out a second mortgage or a line of credit depending on your equity position. Either way your obligation to the condo association must be paid.
