2019 Annual Association Assessment Print E-mail
Click for more info on 2019 assessmentsPursuant to the Association’s governing documents, property owners are hereby notified that the annual assessment for 2019 will increase, by $18, to $648.00 per lot. The Board of Directors would like to again offer each property owner the opportunity to divide their annual assessment into four (4) incremental payments of $162.00 to assist those who might have a hardship in paying the fee in one lump sum. Please note that the entire 2019 assessment must be paid in full and received by the due date, March 31, 2019, to avoid late or legal fees.

Property owners interested in making incremental payments will find four (4) coupons enclosed, in their mailed assessment notification, for use in mailing these payments to the processing center. The suggested due dates for incremental payments are as follows: December 15, 2018, January 15, 2019, February 15, 2019 and March 15, 2019. Property owners may certainly opt to pay their entire 2019 assessment in a single payment by the due date (March 31, 2019) and decline the advantage of the incremental payment option.

Please note that if a property owner is being pursued for outstanding prior year’s fees, any payments made will be credited to outstanding balances or may not be accepted based on the account status. Property owners who are currently delinquent are requested to contact management to discuss their account.

Property owners who are in a financial position preventing them from paying their 2019 assessment in full by March 31, 2019, MUST send a written request for a payment plan extension either by mail, fax or email to the management company prior to the due date to avoid additional fees. For property owners who are currently delinquent, the balance reflected in the mailed statement may not include all pending late or legal fees. Please contact management for the most up to date balance.
