I spent a year making payments on a house I didn’t own – my HOA bought it for less than $4, but I didn’t go to court

A WOMAN has told how she made a series of payments on a home that wasn’t legally hers before being evicted.

Patricia Quigley paid dues to her local homeowners association in Georgia even though the property had been purchased for less than four dollars.

She spent thousands on multiple home loan payments before being kicked out in 2018, according to the Georgia NBC affiliate WXIA.

Despite the ordeal, Quigley said she never went to court because she didn’t understand how the trial worked and what was at stake.

But years before the eviction notice, she said she refused to pay her roughly $700 in fees, apparently in protest against the HOA.

But leaders of the Eagle Watch Homeowners Association hired lawyers and sent the woman letters.

She had to pay off a debt of about $2,700, and Quigley said she asked the homeowners association if that was all she owed to collect the outstanding fees.

Quigley claimed officers told her the $2,700 fee was all she owed, but she later received a letter asking her to pay $3,000.

She said she received further notices from the law firm and the debt increased to over $6,000.

That was before she was hit with the eviction notice.

The notice revealed that the house where she lived had sold for just $3.24

Even though she didn’t live in the house legally, Quigley claimed that the homeowners association accepted her dues payments.

She paid more than $4,000 in mortgage payments to the organization.

But the house she had been living in had been purchased by the HOA before she was evicted.

The US Sun has reached out to the Eagle Watch Homeowner’s Association for comment.
