Hi Olu,

An association fee is a monthly or sometimes yearly fee that a purchaser is required to pay when purchasing Condos, Co-Op's and some Town homes. The fee you pay covers the costs for amenities like use of the community pool, playground, club house,outside grounds maintenance, snow removal, insurance on common ground, street lights,exterior building maintenance,cooking gas,use of private park etc.
With Co-Ops the fee may include Real Estate taxes, heat, and more. Most of the time in larger communities you will be billed by a managing company. Each community has there own amenities,the fees will vary. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me.
