We have recently moved in a new community. When we signed our contract, we were promised a pool, walking trails, and lights in our yard. We have lived in the community for almost 9 months, and none of these items are there. The grass in the community has been mowed just once since we were there. We have already paid around $600.00 in HOA fees. This year, we received another bill for $420.00. Nobody in the community thinks the bill should be paid until the community starts looking good and the pool, walking trails, and lights are installed. We tried to contact the developer as well as the property manager without luck. If we decide not to pay the bill, could we get penalized or in trouble. What can we do about this situation. Please advise!!!!
Thank you very much,
Galia

your board is just as responsible to abide by the bylaws and covenants as the owners. Get copies of your rules, then begin to complain. get into the meetings. write letters. get elected, and then you can fire the property management company.

the best advice i can give is to know the rules, and use them.

Galia, when I am promised anything I get it in writing and signed and dated by an authorized party. The developer can promise you anything but may intend that it is the HOA (you owners) who will be responsible for what is actually done. It is your responsibility to get the facts and GET PROMISES IN WRITING. You may want to contact the developer who made the promises to get clarification.

Meanwhile, when you closed on the purchase of your property you promised to abide by the Declaration of CC&Rs. Thus you are legally responsible for your assessment. Pay what you owe before you incur significant additional expenses.

Send a certified letter to the developer and management. Get it in writing. Sales people always agree to make the sale. Put it in writing. Your complaints are more effective. Have all the owners put it in writing, certified.
