We have lived in our house for three years, our Homeowners association changed management companies and we started to get letters of an outstanding balance. We Usually pay for two or three months in advance so had a problem understanding how we could owe anything. Making numerous phone calls to City Property and requesting documents on how and why we owe this bill over $250.00, Dawn Fowler told us we had to submit a letter requesting any information on our account.
When we sent a letter requesting information and some kind of explanation of why we owe them anything they immediately put a lean on our house for $300.00. We requested them to cease and desist until the issue was resolved still requesting them to show us how we owe this. They finally drafted up this account audit starting two years prior starting from the very first month we moved in charging late fees every month since then. First they started to tell us that we would have to collect any payments we made to the previous management company and that its not their fault if we never got anything from them saying there was a balance. It took them four months to set up a meeting with us and we specifically said that we would just like to meet to discuss this with the board of directors but Dawn Fowler pushed her way in and hired an attorney to be present at our monthly association meeting at the elementary school and then we get another letter after our meeting demanding an additional $565.63 to pay for the attorney fees and costs, an additional $135.00 for collection fees all because we requested them to explain how after three years of paying our dues two or three months in advance we could owe them any money.
These people just love to be able to make anything and everything cost the homeowners more money and pushes us around. What choice do we have but to pay it. They say we owe it so I guess we just have to bow down to HOA's because we the homeowner don't have any rights. CUIC Sweetie.
