HOA Assessments

How much is the HOA assessment?

The Lyons Gate Homeowner Association assessment is $60.00 standard and additional $30.00 for cluster homes. To avoid late fees, please submit your payment by the first day of each month. Don’t forget to include your lot/unit number with your payment.

What are our assessments used for?

The assessments are used to manage and maintain the community. Some of the expenses that must be paid include, but are not limited to, water, electricity, repairs, maintenance, improvements, community management, mailings to owners, insurance and legal fees. Some money is also put into a reserve account to pay for future maintenance.

Will the Board of Directors ever raise the assessment?

The Board of Directors may raise the assessment from time to time in order to keep up with higher expenses, depending on the needs of the association. Any rise in assessment is governed by the community’s bylaws and also by state law, which limits any increase to no more than 20% of the current assessment level.

I’m behind on my payments. Can I set up a payment plan?

The Board of Directors wants to work with you, not against you. Collecting the assessment is important to the success of the community. If you would like to set up a payment plan and avoid further fines and potential legal action, you are strongly encouraged to contact the Community Manager.

What if I don’t pay my assessment?

Not paying your assessment can be related to not paying any other bills, such as a home mortgage, rent or credit card bill. The Board of Directors has approved a collection policy which outlines the process for the collection of delinquent assessments. If your assessment is received late (15 days) or not received at all, a late fee will be imposed on your account. If an owner continues to withhold payment, the Board of Directors can and will seek legal action and/or place a lien on the property to recover all unpaid assessments. In addition, the owner will be responsible for all legal costs associated with recovering the assessments. It is in the best interest of the owner to contact the Board of Directors immediately if you are unable to pay your assessment. The Board of Directors is willing to work with owners in order to collect the assessment without placing an additional burden on the owner.
