New Collection Policy

Effective with the April 1st HOA dues, a new policy was established for payment. Notice was sent out with the Annual Meeting Notice in March. Please read this letter from our Board President, Rob Campbell, which explains the rationale behind the enactment of this new policy.

New HOA Collection Policy dated March 9, 2012

Neighbors,

The Board of Directors works diligently to ensure the safety and soundness of our Community, both physically and financially. Each year over the past five years (and through this recession), we have approved and maintained a balanced budget prior to the start of the new fiscal year. In 2007, we adopted a budget based on a quarterly assessment of $205 per household with the express intent to maintain that fee for a period of four years. We exceeded our goal as the 2012 budget was again approved at the same $205 rate – NO change for five straight years. This goal was also accomplished while having to write-off tens of thousands of dollars annually in uncollectable debts, namely due to an increase in bankruptcies and foreclosures.

As of April 20, 2012, there is currently $55,418.00 in total delinquencies.

This is not an anomaly, rather it has become the norm. The Board of Directors understands that everyone has different circumstances and as such, offers to work with homeowners who fall behind in their assessments. Our communications clearly state that we are willing to accept payment plans to help ease the financial strain on Residents if they are struggling. It is simply up to the homeowner to call the Community Manager to arrange the details. Additionally, we understand that many people choose not to use the automated payment option and sometimes fail to submit their payment in a timely manner. Our unwritten policy has been, and will continue to be that we will waive up to one late fee per calendar year. Again, it is the Resident’s responsibility to call or email the Community Manager to request the waiver.

Over the past several years, we have witnessed a steady increase in the delinquency balance. In light of this, at the February 2012 HOA meeting, we adopted a change in the Association Collection Policy. Beginning April 1, 2012, accounts not paid by the 15th day of the quarter shall be assessed a late fee. Assessments have always been due on the 1st day of the quarter – the new change merely provides for a 15 day grace period as opposed to the previous 30 day grace period. A formal communication detailing the new policy was mailed to ALL homeowners along with the Annual Meeting and Election notice on March 9, 2012.

The new Collection Policy is also published on the HOA web site at: www.hamptonparkonline.com. Enter “assessment” in the search window at the top right corner of the home page.

Our Community is approximately a $700,000 per year corporation. Your Board of Directors is a Team of business Leaders who volunteer to serve and carry the responsibility of maintaining Hampton Park as a great place to call home. In order to continue successful business operations, we sometimes have to make hard calls for the betterment of the neighborhood, in its entirety. This change represents just one of those decisions.

The HOA Board of Directors recognizes that some of you may not agree with all of our decisions. We simply ask for your support – and participation. We are ultimately here to serve You and we likewise are impacted by these decisions.

The HOA Board of Directors meets the second Tuesday of each month at the Festival House at 6:00 PM. Our next meeting is scheduled for May 8th. We always allow time for homeowner comments at the beginning of the agenda and welcome you to attend.

Thanks for your support and I hope to see you at a future meeting!

Rob Campbell
President, Hampton Park Community Association
