Annual Assessment Collection Policy

The Muirfield Association, Inc. Annual Assessment Collection Policy is in accordance with Article 2 of the Warranty Deed and addresses the application and use of the annual assessment fees and deed enforcement fees.

The annual assessment billing is usually mailed at the end of January of each year. Payment is due and considered late if not received within 30 days. Interest in the amount of 8% per annum shall be incurred on late payments.

Delinquency of more than 90 days may result in a lien being filed against the property and/or legal action for a personal judgment. In addition, the Association shall have the right to enforce and foreclose on the property. Any costs, including attorneys’ fees, recording costs, title reports and/or court costs, incurred by the Association in the collection of delinquent assessments shall be added to the amount owed by the delinquent Owner.

Unpaid assessments may result in the suspension of owners/residents rights to use the common property and elements. (See Sec. 5.05 of the Warranty Deed)

Payments received are allocated to the owner’s account in the following order:

1. Collection of legal fees;
2. Interest and/or administrative late fees;
3. Principal amount owed for common expenses and assessments.

Owners may request a certificate stating that all annual charges or installments thereof (including interest and other fees, if any) have been paid with respect to any specified unit as of the date of such certificate. In the event that all charges and installments thereof have not been paid, the certificate must set forth the amount (including interest and fees, if any) due and payable as of such date. The Association may charge a reasonable fee for this certificate.
