In most cases yes, unfortunately, as long as the home is titled in your name.  Many people in the Camden and Gloucester County area are upside down on their homes. They can't afford the mortgage, and they cannot sell it because they owe more than it is worth.  But as long as you are the titled owner to the unit, you will continue to be responsible for condo fees that accrue after the bankruptcy is filed.

Although the discharge does wipe out any fees that accrued before you filed, you are on the hook for them going forward. Thus you can not just "walk away" from a condo; you will just end up paying rent at another place, while continuing to pay the fees on the home you left!
