If you own a condominium, you are part of an association. This means that you must follow the rules and regulations set forth by the association, which are typically spelled out in the association's bylaws. One of these rules may be that the association has the right to force an owner to sell their unit if they violate certain norms or if their ownership creates a financial burden for the rest of the members. For instance, if you consistently fail to pay your monthly dues, the association could argue that you are not upholding your responsibilities as a member. Similarly, if you allow your unit to fall into disrepair, it could negatively impact the property values of the other units in the building. As a result, the association could decide that it is in the best interests of the community to force you to sell your unit. While this may seem like a drastic measure, it is important to remember that associations have a legal right to make these decisions. If you are concerned about being forced to sell your unit, it is advisable to consult with an attorney who specializes in community associations.
