Does anyone know road assessment fees are legally enforceable by a HOA type body? I recently picked up a couple of vacant lots from a county auction (failure to pay property tax). The lots are small wooded lots on a gravel road and I only paid $100 for both of them. I now have a bill from the community HOA for a little over $200 per lot for a "road assessment" fee. It states that they will put a lien on the property if I don't pay. Should I just tell them to go jump? I never signed anything with them.
