Adopted by the Board of Directors - APRIL 2011

Assessments for common expenses are based on an annual budget and are due in monthly installments on each month of the year for which the assessments are made. Special Assessments are due as agreed by the membership or deemed necessary by the Board of Directors and the Association Management Company.

Fees not received by the 15th of the month will be considered delinquent. Fees must be received in the office not just post marked by the 15th to be considered received on time. If the 15th falls on a Saturday or Sunday, fees will be posted the following Monday and considered timely.

Any homeowner who is delinquent will be obligated to pay an Administration Late Fee of $15.00 for each unpaid assessment or installment thereof. In addition, if the account continues to be in arrears after 60 days from the billing date, the Association will send a letter to inform the owner that the account will be submitted for collection if payment is not received within ten (10) days of the mailing of the correspondence.

All expenses for the collection will be assessed to the owner’s lot. Full legal action to collect delinquent association fees could include foreclosure of the Association’s lien on the property.

Administrative Late Fees will continue to be charged on any past due amount owing on the account.

Payments received on any delinquent account will be credited to the oldest assessment first, whether they are regular monthly assessments, special assessments, fines, collection expenses or late fees, and then to the most current assessment.

The Board of Directors holds full authority to accelerate the deadlines established by this policy in the event of a change in the ownership or where it is in the best interest of the Association to do so. The Board holds authority to waive or alter the policy for special cases upon appeal by the owner.


Adopted by the Board of Directors - NOVEMBER 2016

All homeowners are required to carry their own HO6 insurance policy over and above the master hazard policy carried by the Association. Homeowner’s HO6 policy shall have adequate real property coverage in an amount at least the same as the Association’s master policy’s deductible. Currently the Association carries a $25,000 deductible on the master hazard policy.

In an insurable event, whether caused by acts of God or by accidental damage to the inside of a homeowners dwelling, the $25,000 shall be paid in the following manner.

  1. When only one dwelling is affected, the homeowner of that individual dwelling shall pay for the deductible amount.
  2. When more than one dwelling is affected, all affected homeowners shall share the cost of the deductible on a pre-rata share based upon the total claim amount.

In all claim situations, homeowners are to contact the Association Management Company who will submit a claim to the insurance carrier for the Association’s master blanket policy if applicable.

Homeowners shall also contact their own HO-6 policy underwriter to submit a claim on their H0-6 policy. The homeowner’s H0-6 policy shall pay the $25,000 of the Association deductible less the deductible amount carried on the homeowners H0-6 policy.

All insurance proceeds paid to the Association from the master blanket policy shall be paid to the affected homeowner or contractor upon receipt of repair bills evidencing repair work has been completed.


Please refer to the Association website for a complete and current list of Vendors.


If homeowners are having any problems with their mail box locks or keys, they will need to contact the US Postal Service to have locks changed or keys replaced as the postal service owns and maintains the boxes. The new 1-800 number for postal questions and service is 1-800-275-8777

Some of the problems homeowners have experienced in the past are keys that are hard to get in and out of the lock and locks freezing up in the winter time. A quick fix it for this would be to spray WD-40 lubricant or a lock de-icer in the lock and this usually will loosen up the lock.
