Assessments pay for amenities such as landscaping, lake maintenance, community events, and other services. Assessments can be paid either in full at the beginning of the fiscal year, or in ten monthly installments. The fiscal year runs May through February, and the annual assessment is due May 1. Monthly assessments are due on the first day of each month, May through February. If the account is paid in full, there are no assessments due in March or April. A processing fee of $2 per month is added to payments made monthly. Any assessment received after the tenth of the month will incur a $35 late fee. Payment coupons are mailed to owners of record that are not signed up for Automatic Debit following the approval of the budget at the Annual Meeting in March. Dues for the 2020-2021 fiscal year are $570 or $59 a month for ten months. If you do not receive your coupon book by end of March, contact FirstService Residential accounting staff for a replacement at 703.385.1133.
