What do my annual maintenance fees cover? The CCIA maintenance fee is the amount each homeowner is required to pay on an annual basis. This fee covers security, backdoor trash services, ongoing maintenance, beautification, mosquito fogging, utilities for street lights and common ground sprinklers, special events, accounting fees, legal fees, and administrative expenses. A comparison of the surrounding neighborhood HOAs can be found here.
When are my annual maintenance fees due? Each December, an invoice for the next year's maintenance fees is sent out to each property owner. That invoice offers the property owner the option to pay the entire amount by January 1st or to pay only half the amount of the invoice by January 1st and the remainder before July 1st. If only half the annual fees are paid by January 1st, then the remaining half is invoiced to the property owner in June and is due July 1st.
