Assessment Fees
  • The only means by which the association has to financially support its activities are through the collection of assessment fees of all Castlewoods members which pay for accounting, lawn, playground equip & pavilion, 6+ detention ponds, 14 subdivision brick entrance structures, irrigation, landscape lighting, insurance, violation enforcement, etc. 
  • Dues are assessed Annually to the owner of each lot. 
  • Dues assessed are $238 annually thru Dec 31, 2019 but go to $260 per year starting Jan 1, 2020. No transfer fee at this time but call Homeland Neighborhood Management to check for assessment balances that may also include Covenant Violation assessments. 
  • Dues are delinquent if not paid in January of each year. A late fee of $25 will be assessed on all delinquent accounts as of Feb 1st. If not promptly paid, Liens will be placed on parcels and those lien filing and administrative fees will be added to the account. Assessment balances $500 and over will have judgments filed.  Assessment covers budgetary needs to keep and maintain common areas (entrances, common areas landscaping, utilities, management, playground equipment, pavilion, certain lighting, irrigation, detention pond maintenance).
 
Enforcement & Fines
 
When the Association was formed, covenants were created to maintain a high level of construction guidelines and establish excellent living standards for neighborhoods. All real estate agents are required to advise buyers of homes in the Association of the covenants so prospective buyers are aware they exist. Normally, this helps in the sale of a home because most buyers want to live in a community which insists on high living standards. 

A procedure was established to permit concerned Association members to report perceived covenant violations to the Board of Directors for action. The Board then has the responsibility to make sure a violation truly exists; and send a letter advising the homeowner of the violation and request correction. In most cases, the violation is corrected easily and quickly. If not, a series of follow up warnings and requests follow, which ultimately can lead to a fine if the violator refuses to comply with the requests. 
 
For details about the various enforcement actions, see Sections 4 through 7 of the Castlewoods HOA Rules and Regulations. Actions and fines can vary depending on the type of violation and are covered in detail in that document.
