Home Buying in 20190>Question Details

Diego Mayne, Home Buyer in 20190

I have emailed 6 realtors regarding the HOA fees on listed properties - have not received answers from any one

Asked by Diego Mayne, 20190 Wed Dec 31, 2008

Could this be due to escalating HOA fees due to foreclosure/delinquencies? How can I inform myself about the HOA fee situation in a particular condo - and, if possible, protect myself from HOA fees that escalate out of controll. Thanks, Diego

I agree with Glenda, Diego but yes, I feel checking in first is the key. Send us the name of the community or communities you are interested we can do the research but if not then you got some help!

Happy New Year to all of you

Just to clarify ... As Monika points out, the Reston Owners Association dues are an additional fee charged by many communities/condos in Reston. But not all of the communities in Reston belong to ROA ... WestMarket is one example. Be sure to ask the condo association rep if their community is part of the Reston Owners Association.

Hi Diego,
As Glenda is correct about checking on DPOR site, you may also consider checking out http://www.restonweb.com ------ One more to keep in mind for Reston --- there are always two Fees.. One is HOA/Condo and other is Reston association which gives you access to pools and tennis courts and each homeowner living in Reston pays that; it is mostly annual.

If I can do further research let me know.

You don't identify the particular condo association that you're concerned about so I can't really help you with the fee question, but you could try calling the association directly. Generally, the association can't just raise fees willy-nilly ... there's a specific process (spelled out in the CC&Rs) that governs the process.

The Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation requires condo associations to be registered, so check there first to find the contact information: http://www.dpor.virginia.gov. Click on License Lookup, type in the condo name and then check the box for Association Registration. Post back here if this doesn't work for you.
