Am I Responsible For Hoa Dues In Michigan?

We purchased a short sale last year and just received for HOA dues for 2013. I reviewed my original offer, purchase agreement and closing documents – no where does it mention a HOA. There is one section in the Purchase Agreement stating: CONDOMINIUM/HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION ASSESSMENTS: Current dues shall be prorated to date of closing. Any delinquent condominium/homeowner association dues/assessments/liens shall be paid by Seller at closing. Any and all dues/assessments/liens confirmed and becoming due and payable after closing will be paid by Buyer. (See Condominium Addendum made a part hereof if applicable).
Note: No Condo Addendum was made available.
Am I responsible for the dues?

    From the day you took title forward. You may have some recourse against a real estate agent or the bank who authored the shortsale for failure to disclose unless you had constructive notice that the property was a condo or in a HOA

    Of course you owe those HOA fees. This the language which covers such :
    CONDOMINIUM/HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION ASSESSMENTS: Current dues shall be prorated to date of closing. Any delinquent condominium/homeowner association dues/assessments/liens shall be paid by Seller at closing. Any and all dues/assessments/liens confirmed and becoming due and payable after closing will be paid by Buyer.
    That language specifically binds you to the required payments Did you read that part before you signed ?
