Typically as a renter, the landlord pays the social membership, which allows you access to the main pool, the manor home and club restaurant, playgrounds, main tennis courts, etc. That is the basic social membership. All cable and internet, lawn care and basic landscaping, trash, snow removal, etc. are covered by the HOA, which is also paid for by the landlord. If you want access to the fitness center, the adult pool- which has its own bar, and the clay tennis courts, you would need to pay an additional $83.00 to upgrade to the next level of social membership. You would need to contact Megan McKee at 703.723.5347 for more information on that or for golf package. If you sign up for that, it is all inclusive to all the amenities.
Additionally, there is usually a $250.00 transfer fee for a tenant to use the social membership that the landlord pays for. However, that is something to negotiate with the listing agent as to whether or not the tenant or landlord pays the transfer fee. Also, each tenant should also be given two FOBs for gate access, even if the property is outside the gates of Belmont, but still part of the Belmont community.
