I was out there today scouting investment property and there was a newspaper article posted in the clubhouse "community news" case that discussed the issue of property owners not paying the HOA fees. Because of this, the HOAs in certain condominiums have had to seize the rental payment directly from renters. In the meantime, HOAs have had to foreclose on properties whose owners have not paid HOA fees. There were workers sodding the entrance to the Highlands to improve the appearance, but the HOA fees there are at least $100-$150 HIGHER than other local condominium neighborhoods. Not sure why the fees are higher as the property did not seem nicer than others.
