Each HOA ( Homeowners Association) determines their own fees. These fees are charged to each homeowner to cost of community maintenance and is dependant upon what they cover/maintain. Additionally, some HOA communities have more amentites than others. HOA fees that are collected may cover items such as: building insurance, water/sewer, roof repairs/roof replacement, common area maintenance, cable, amenities etc. The HOA is a mandatory fee assessed by each separate community that can be charged to the home owner on a monthly or quarterly basis. If you have any questions on a particular community, I have most of the community HOA numbers on my website which is: http://homesforsalewellingtonfl.com/ The HOA link is on the bottom right hand side of my page.
