If you don’t pay your condominium association fees in Broward County, you risk more than the ire of your neighbors: there might be a trip to the lockup in your future. Broward Circuit Court Judge Thomas Lynch ordered sheriff’s deputies to bring condo investor Timothy Mohn to his court to offer a reason why he had not handed over his tenants’ rent to the receiver appointed to oversee the battered finances of the Villas de Venezia complex in Sunrise, where he owns two units. Mohn, who was already in jail for other charges, missed a court date, after which Lynch sent the sheriff to physically bring him to court via a writ of bodily attachment. The condo association’s lawyers said this demonstrates the seriousness with which judges are treating condo developments in receivership in terms of collecting rent and maintenance fees from delinquent owners. Mohn’s case would be the first in which “a foreclosure debtor may be put in jail for a foreclosure-related issue,” said Ben Solomon, an attorney for the Villas. [Miami Herald]
