How much are the annual HOA dues?
Annual HOA homeowner assessment, often called dues or fees, is $350 per year. The assessment covers January 1 through December 31 of each year. The assessment is due not later than January 15 of each year. A late fee will be assessed for any payments after January 15.
Can I withhold my HOA assessment payment if I am unhappy with the HOA?
No, you cannot. Homeowners are legally obligated to pay the annual assessment without exception. Failure to pay can result in the placement of a lien on your house.
What is this money used for by the HOA?
The HOA is a non-profit corporation and uses all monies received for the benefit of the community. No salaries are paid to the members of the board or committees of the HOA. Owners will receive a budget each year that shows where the funds go. Most of our annual expenditures go to maintain and operate our common areas.
When are garbage and recycling picked up?
Garbage and recycling are collected every Thursday, except on holiday weeks. Then the pick-up day is one day later (Friday). However, collection days are subject to change depending upon weather and workload. See the City of Auburn website (Auburnalabama.org) for more information.
I can't find my mailbox key or I never received a mailbox key, how do I get one?
Please contact the USPS for replacement or additional mailbox keys. If you have not gotten your keys, please email email@example.com to coordinate getting your keys.
