What are the Annual Dues and What is Money Used For?

Timing and Cost of Dues:

Association dues are assessed annually to cover the community's expenses for the upcoming calendar year.  For more detail on the association's jurisdiction to assess and collect annual dues and how this money is used, please review the attached document:  


                                                    Why We Pay Annual Dues
  

Dues of $100 per home have already been collected to cover expenses for the period of:
 

                                                     1/1/2019 thru 12/31/2019
    

When you receive an invoice, your prompt payment is very much appreciated.  The additional efforts of the Board and extra expense necessary to follow up on delinquent payments provides no value to the community.  In addition, when annual dues are determined, it is based upon the assumption that all homes in the association will pay their dues.  Non-payment of dues adds to the burden of the paying homeowners, creates additional work for the Board, and undermines the very concept of this association of shared responsibility.


Invoices follow this timeline and escalation process:

    

  • Invoices mailed on December 1st for annual dues for coming year.
  • Payment is due by February 1st of the dues year.
  • On February 1st, a late notice will be mailed for all unpaid dues.
  • On February 15th,, a 9% annual late fee will be applied to that balance.
  • A lien will be filed against the property when an outstanding balance reaches $325.  
  • Liens will include a 9% late fee, filing fee with Oakland County, and any additional expenses incurred to complete the transaction.  
  • Liens will be updated on a yearly-basis and additional fees and expenses will be added to the balance.  
  • All lien cancellation fees will be billed to the property as well when a lien is released.
