The Denver Post: In February, a stranger knocked on the door of Monica Villela’s home in Green Valley Ranch and showed her the paperwork that proved he bought her house at a foreclosure auction for $25,000.
Villela said she had no idea that the Master Homeowners Association of Green Valley Ranch had put a lien on her family’s home, which they’d owned for 17 years, because they had not pulled their trash can from the street on time. A fine for that violation had accumulated late fees for non-payment that eventually led to the lien, which led to a foreclosure sale.
“I couldn’t believe it,” Villela said.
