UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOME ASSESSMENT FEES AND HOA MEMBERSHIP DUES
Posted on Jun 5th, 2019

 
HOME ASSESSMENT FEES: Greater Pines home assessment fees are collected annually with your real estate property taxes by the Lake County Tax Collector. You will see them listed in the Non-Ad Valorem Assessments section on your tax bill. According to the Bylaws of the Greater Pines Homeowners Association, Inc, these mandatory fees are for neighborhood expenses. They are intended to pay electricity bills for street lamps, landscaping, general repairs and maintenance of our community areas that include the pool and cabana, tennis courts, tot-lot, water retention areas and the wall along Hancock Road.
 
HOA MEMBERSHIP DUES: Membership in the HOA is voluntary. Applications for membership may be submitted to the HOA Board of Directors along with $20 annual dues payment. Monies collected from the membership dues are used for social activities in the community. Prior activities include ice-cream socials, movie nights, community-wide garage sales, neighborhood breakfast, pool parties and the very popular Annual Family Fun Day and Winter Holiday Parties. Additionally, HOA members in good standing (no covenant violations and paid annual dues) are entitled to vote for your Board of Directors at the Annual Meeting. These special events are designed to promote and foster neighborhood involvement.
