Some homeowners question why they have to pay what is commonly known as the member assessment or dues when they move into a homeowner association. While assessments may be a technically correct term, the fact is that they are actually property maintenance fees. When the collective buying power of the entire association is factored in, they prove to be a real bargain for individual homeowners. These fees cover exterior maintenance, landscaping, trash removal, parks, association administration, recreation facilities, and more. They also include savings for future big-ticket items like roofs, pool decks, A/C units, and repaving parking lots—which means homeowners will not be hit unexpectedly with a special assessment or loan payback when capital improvements become necessary.

This is why it is important to pay your member assessment in a timely manner. It is also noteworthy to mention that access to amenities is dependent upon being up-to-date on your assessment payments as well.
