House was just auctioned off on Friday 3/9/2012.

HOA dues are payable on the 1st of the month, and late after the 15th.

We technically owned the house for the first 8 days of March, though we were locked out of it.

Do I pay the HOA a prorated amount for those days?

Or do I tell the HOA to go after the new owner for the March dues?

I just want to know that our slate with the HOA is clean, and we are done with them.

I wouldn't worry about it. I doubt they will sue for 8 days.
I know that common sense tells me to not worry about it, but I've never met anyone on the board of directors of an HOA that had any common sense. : )

Is there a redemption period in your state? Here in Michigan the deed does not become operative until after the redemption period. Not sure exactly what that means though.

We're in California, and I don't believe there is a redemption period here. Though it was hard to loose the house, we realized that it was the best thing for us. There was a ton of repairs that still needed to be done, even though we had worked on it for over thirteen years. And the house was underwater by over $250,000.00. Just didn't make sense to stay there.
