Dear Mister Condo,
Does any government agency help when you can’t pay your condo fees and you fall behind without a job?
Mister Condo replies:
S.S., I know of no government agency that helps specifically with paying condo common fees for folks who lose their job or become otherwise financially strapped. There are programs that offer unemployment benefits, and programs that offer rent assistance. There are even government programs that can help with mortgage refinancing to help lower monthly mortgage payments but common fees are the responsibility of the condominium unit owner.
