AAM, LLC / Charging of Fees
Last year we had purchased a home in this community known as WestPark. It was "run, " and I use that term loosely, by AAM, LLC. They sent out a homeowner's bill to an old address that was listed on the actual Purchase Contract, OUTSIDE of their community, instead of our purchased home within the community. Makes no sense. So since they give you approx. 10 days to pay your fees, it took the Post Office 2 weeks to redirect the mail to our house and we had to pay Attorney Fee's for a Demand Letter.
We were told that we could appearl the demand fees which we did. They responded back by saying it was our responsibility to notify them of our address? Well my take is who gave them our old non-occupied address in the first place? Second, if it is the home owners responsiblity to pay fees, shouldn't it be the HOA's responsiblity to send the bill to the right house?
So because the HOA sent the info to the Attorney, it was a "Hard Fee" that they were not going to pay and passed it on to us for their stupidity. Furthermore, the letter concluded that it wouldn't be fair for others to get stuck with our fees if we paid on time. Well, paying bills is not an issue, if you know about them.
They had the nerve to say that all decisions can not be appealed futher. I think its time to take this to TV Investigations.
