HOA fees are a negotiated item in the lease. Normally they are paid by the landlord, just be sure it is clearly detailed in the lease. If there are separate recreation facilities, be sure to find out if you have access and who pays those fees.
Good luck in your search!

In most cases the HOA fees are paid by the property owner. All information regarding monthly charges should be disclosed to you in the lease before signing.
