Homeowner's Dues are monthly fees paid to an Homeowners' association, or HOAs, which are formal legal entities created to maintain common areas of a local community, condo or subdivision. They usually cover the general maintenance landscaping, street cleaning, security, trash pickup and etc. One thing to be careful of is to investigate how much the Homeowner dues are for a particular property. Some fees can range from $100 to over $1000. So make sure the fees are within your budget which should include also your mortgage payment. This is important because failure to pay your homeowner's dues according to the binding agreement from an association can result in a foreclosure of your property outside of your mortgage payment to your lender.
