Our HOA deals with the bank that owns the property. Most often they do the upkeep on schedule. We have had a couple that drag their feet and when the property becomes unbearable to look at, we notify our code enforcement department who then sends the owner a letter to either clean it up or the County will do it and the bill is sent to them.
When the house sells, any money owed to the HOA for unpaid dues, assessments, penalties, etc., is paid for by the bank.
