— Late in Massachusetts
More significantly, your unpaid late fees constitute a lien against your unit which is enforceable as regular monthly condominium fees under the statute. This means that, not only will you be liable for your unpaid late fees, but you will also be liable for the association’s attorneys’ fees and costs of collection if these late fees remain unpaid.
Finally, your association may even opt to initiate lien enforcement legal proceedings to foreclose upon your unit for these unpaid late fees. In short, even though the only outstanding charges on your account are attributable to late payment fees, the consequences of non-payment of these late fees are virtually identical to those as if you failed to pay your regular monthly fees.
