My question involves a condominium located in the State of: Hawaii
I am wondering if a condo can continue to charge late fees every month for one unpaid late fee? It is not in the Bylaws nor in the State Laws. In fact State Law says a late fee can NOT be subtracted from regular monthly maintenance fees. The Board will not discuss it at all then tripled the amount by adding their lawyers fees then threatened foreclosure. I paid the amount in full even though only ONE month was late. I would like to recover it.
They then immediately added double the total amount I paid saying I owe more atty. fees for the same thing. They also added a late fee to that new bill and will continue. I need a tourniquet!
It is around $2,500 now. Hiring an attorney would cost more than the debt which I am sure they are counting on!! Any suggestions?
