In "Hometown Condominium Ass’n No. 2 v. Mohammed, 2018 IL App (2d) 171030" Bob Prince of Cervantes Chatt & Prince successfully argued before the Second Appellate District of Illinois where a third-party purchaser at a foreclosure sale refused to make payment following confirmation of the judicial sale thereby failing to extinguish the Association's lien for assessments.  Though the third-party purchaser did make payment on the eve of trial, the Appellate Court held because the payment was not made until 17 months after the judicial sale, the Association's lien was not extinguished by the payment and the third-party purchaser owed the entire amount of unpaid assessments for the unit.
