Important Notice – Monthly Maintenance
Dear Building 11 Resident,
As you are aware, being an owner in a condominium building means you are a cooperative owner, along with the other residents, in the building. Your monthly maintenance payments go towards paying the monthly bills for the building such as electric, water/sewer, trash collection, cable, elevator service, landscaping and janitorial services to name a few.
There are also annual bills such as certification and inspection of our fire alarm, fire extinguishers, the elevator as well as building insurance. These are just some of the costs associated with maintaining and servicing the building where you live and call home.
Each year these costs are presented and approved during our annual budget meeting and incorporated into your monthly maintenance payment based on your percentage of common ownership.
When an owner of our building does not pay, or fails to pay timely, their monthly maintenance this causes an unfair situation to the remaining residents of our building. Therefore, the Board of Directors has implemented a process to encourage prompt payment of a unit owner’s budgetary responsibility to their neighbors and to have a fair and uniform process for all residents and to guide the Board.
All Association Payments are to be mailed to the following:
Hillcrest Country Club No 11
P.O. Box 85001 Dept 8945
Orlando, Fl 32885-8945
Effective August, 1, 2015 the following process will be followed.
- Monthly maintenance is due the first of each month.
- If payment is not posted to your account by the tenth of the month, a $25 late fee will be accessed (please note that any payments received will be applied to any outstanding balance first. If a balance remains, including any unpaid late fees, this will then be subject to an additional $25 late fee the following month)
- If payment in full (including any applicable late fees or fines) is not posted to your account by
the fifteenth of the month, the resident’s account will automatically be transferred to attorney for collection action resulting in additional costs of late and attorney fees.
- If unit account is transferred for collection activity, The Hillcrest Presidents Council will be notified and residents of unit will lose access to amenities which will not be reinstated until after full payment of outstanding fees. This includes access to pools, fitness center, BBQ areas and parks of the Hillcrest Presidents Council.
- Any special assessments will have the same process applied. Special assessments are due by the due date established by the Board (without exception). Additionally, should the special assessment not be paid timely, once account is transferred to Association attorney, a lien will be placed on unit.
- Request for financial hardship must be submitted in writing to the Board by the owner. In order to qualify for hardship, the account must be current and not have been late within the prior twelve months. Only one hardship request will be considered within any twelve month period.
Thank you for your cooperation and consideration for your fellow neighbors,
The Board of Directors
