4 – Payment of Residential Association
In many communities, a monthly residents’ association takes some fee for exterior maintenance. The fee could cover your patio and garden arrangement. Not all communities are equal and so the extent of maintenance varies. It is a myth to think that only gated communities with access to gate require maintenance fees.
5 – Meet the Requirements of Your Community
The house is yours, but the lifestyle is imposed by your community, city and state where you live. The rules that apply to your neighborhood will have to be compiled by you as well, and this can include anything from the parking lot to the exterior color of your property, so investigate first carefully about all these expected payments you need to make.
