Payments received or postmarked after the 10th day of the month will be assessed a late fee of $50.00. Any unpaid fees after 60 days the owner will receive a letter in writing requiring contact with the Property Manager to communicate a payment plan. Any unpaid fees after 90 days without a communication/payment plan will be turned over to the ParTerra legal office for appropriate action.
Payment of Fines: Fines will be assessed at the discretion of the Board of Directors at monthly Board of Directors meetings. The unit owner being fined shall have the right to attend the Board meeting. Payment of any fine assessed must be made within ten (10) days or a payment plan must be submitted.
