Some homeowners agree that fraud is involved with this newly appointed association in Saw Creek, PA. This situation involves renovations and new dues. The complaint we have against the Mill Pond assoc. is tied in with a prior lawsuit because saw creek is divided into 2 parts -private homes and townhouses. we are now paying 100 percent more in dues and an additional 20, 000 for renovations that were forced upon the homeowners in a misleading way.
They refuse to make the minutes available for all homeowners that cant make the meetings. This accusation is not associated with forclosures . It is about discrepencies in the information we were given before compared to what we are told now. we need help but the financial burden we already face makes it difficult to hire a lawyer.

The unfortunate timing of Mill Pond townhouses separating from SCECA happened at the height of the real estate boom when prices where sky high. What followed was a dramatic increase in maintenance charges in addition to SCECA dues. All that was exacerbated by recession which resulted in numerous foreclosures that followed and home prices fell dramatically. On the other hand many good things happened at Mill Pond - the grounds were renovated, including new walkways, parking lots, updated landscaping, and lighting. The $16, 124 assessment for all home owners covered new decks, roofs, and siding was paid by some owners while others opted for a 20 year loan. The dues did rise during recession, when up to a quarter of members skipped on their maintenance payments that covers essential needs of the community - grass cutting, snow removal, grinder pumps repair and maintenance, electric, insurance, etc. As foreclosed homes were sold and MPUOA was getting repaid for the money owed, the savings were passed on owners by reduction in dues by 27%. The Board of Directors hopes to reduce 2015 dues as well! Better practice of financial disclosure was initiated to reach more home owners as all transactions were converted into an electronic data base. As a result we see a growing interest in Mill Pond home ownership as well as slowly but surely rising home prices. MPUOA urges all home owners take a more active role in their community affairs if we want to see us moving in a right direction.

Agree and we pay double amenities for what the grounds are not cleaned as early as they should leaves in fall are piled up and in winter months snow is not plowed its now 1:21pm . And nothing is plowed snow is accumulating on our cars and I would like to remove it before it gets worse. This happens all the time I have to either go out myself put salt down or pay someone to remove the snow make a path ...ridiculous
