Thank you to Closing Attorney, Amee Davis of Davis & Associates, Attorneys at Law, LLC. Contact Amee directly with additional questions: ADavis@DavisLawGA.com.

There are many issues with the Community Association Fees & Association Management Company Fees being charged at closing. The issue is that these Management Companies will not always disclose their fees PRIOR to closing. The Seller & Buyer need to understand the verbiage of warrants & responsibilities when completing the GAR Community Association Disclosure Exhibit (F122.)

Sellers need to discover ALL of the Association AND Management Company fees due at closing including fees for: Dues, Initiation, Assessments, Transfer Letter, Convenience Fees, Processing Fees, Account Closure Fees, Internet Access Fees and more! Also, how long is a “Letter” good for? Watch the video to learn how you as a real estate agent may address these issues & more!

Thank you also to Jay Alexander, (NMLS 223779) Mortgage Loan Originator of Homestar Financial Corporation. Jay.Alexander@HomestarFC.com for his additional comments regarding this issue!
