The Colorado Court of Appeals has ruled that homeowners associations are constitutionally required to do more than serve notice of a pending foreclosure on a homeowner by mail and newspaper publication.

Martha Hummel has owned her home in Loveland, Colorado, since 1999, according to the appeals court’s opinion. Her home is part of a homeowners association and comes with commensurate monthly dues.

Hummel had limited contact with the outside world and, over time, experienced a deterioration of her mental health.
