Hi Jeanlouis,
HOA fees are very important fees. They are fees paid by the residents of the community to assist in the maintenance of the neighborhood that is managed by a Property Management company. The Property Management company oversees the community to make sure residents are abiding by the covenants that are set in place for the neighborhood. This is to keep the home values in check.

When you are ready to relocate keep me in mind, I will love the opportunity to service your real estate needs.

An HOA fee is due under many circumstances, In Georgia there are 3 types of Community Associations, HOA, POA and Condominium Associations. An HOA can be mandatory or voluntary. A POA is mandatory as is a Condo Assoc. When you are ready to make an offer, ask for a Community Association Disclosure form to be provided by the listing agent, it will show which one it is, if it is mandatory, how much the dues are and how often they are paid. if there are special assessments for 1 time items that are unpaid or coming up, this form will have it as well. Good luck and welcome to Atlanta.

Jeanlouis, home owner assessment (HOA) fees are fees that must be paid on varying periodicities (depending in the property type)by owners of certain types of residential property to an organization that assists with maintaining and improving common areas and amenities of that property and others in the same group. HOA fees are almost always levied on condominium and townhome owners, but may also apply in some single-family neighborhoods as well.

I'd be more than happy to assist with your relocation to Atlanta and to address any other inquiries you may have. Feel free to call or email me directly.
