RSF Covenant HOA fees?

Asked by Gary, Paradise Valley, AZ Mon Jun 18, 2012

I've heard differing stories about the RSF Covenant HOA fees. Are the fees based on the sales price or the assessed value of a home?

They should be based on percentage of homes. House would differ from condos You would have to look up the HOA By Laws.

Hi Gary,

Yes, Kelly is correct. Furthermore, if you are looking to build in the covenant, expect a minimum of 6 months to 1 year to get your plans through the Architectural Review Committee. After that, you have to apply for your grading and building permits.

Best of luck,

Hello Gary,

That's a great question. Kelly is correct in that the fees are of the assessed value of the home and the fee is $0.14 per $100 of assessed value. A more practical way of looking at the Rancho Santa Fe Covenant HOA fees is that it comes out to $1,400 per $1,000,000 of assessed value per year. The RSF association looks at the assessed values every year. If a home owners property goes up or down in assessed value that year, the HOA fees should be adjusted accordingly.

The HOA fees collected by the RSF Association go towards maintaining and improving the amenities offered to RSF Covenant residents. A few of those amenities are 24 hour security patrol and giving members of the Covenant golf and tennis eligibility at the country club. It also help maintain over 50 miles of private walking and equestrian trails and pays for the administrative costs of the Rancho Santa Fe Association. If you would like more details or have any other questions, please contact me. Thank you for your question.
