Can Homeowners Association Dues in Minnesota be Discharged in Bankruptcy

The answer in typical lawyer fashion is yes and no. The homeowners association debts can be discharged that are owed from the date the bankruptcy is filed. The problem most of my clients run into is they are still responsible for the association dues that accrue from the day of the bankruptcy filing until they no longer have an interest in the property. That means that you should continue to pay your dues until the house sells, a sheriffs sale happens, or you give the property back to the bank. If you do not pay most association agreements allow for the attorney fees to collect the money from you.
