(a) Until the association levies a common expense assessment, the declarant shall pay all accrued expenses of the condominium. After any assessment has been levied by the association, assessments shall be levied at least annually and shall be based on a budget adopted at least annually by the association.
(b) Except for assessments under subsections (c) and (d), common expenses shall be assessed against all the units in accordance with the common expense liability allocated to each unit (section 515A.2-108). Any past due assessment or installment thereof shall bear interest at the rate established by the association not exceeding the rate of interest provided in section 549.09.
(c) Except as provided by the declaration any common expense associated with the maintenance, repair, or replacement of a limited common element shall be assessed against the unit or in equal shares against the units to which that limited common element was assigned at the time the expense was incurred.
(d) If the declaration so provides, the association may assess any common expense benefiting less than all of the units against the units benefited. In that case the common expense shall be allocated among units benefited in proportion to their common expense liability.
