On community chest card, I was told to pay 400 per each house I own due to insurance price hike. I owned 12 houses, so this adds up to 4800.

Now - as I didn't have enough money, I mortgaged some other properties, and sold 3 houses back to the bank (leaving me with 9 houses). Do I still have to pay 4800 for 12 houses, or is it only 3600 now as I only own 9 houses now? Bit silly paying insurance price hike for houses I don't own anymore. Any thoughts?

You can sell property to raise the amount that needs to be paid. The amount was 4800.

Think of it as paying in arrears


You should take it as a bill on the moment of possesing the houses. So unfortunately you should resolve the payment first by all means possible before anything else is taken into account.
