Residents of KB Homes: Parkside Village and Parkside Manor
United States of America

KB Homes established the fact that residents of Parkside Village and Manor will have access to a Clubhouse and other amenities of the subdivision.

KB Home residents pay a $395 yearly Homeowner Association Fees and it was specified that this covers the upkeeps of the grounds and access to the amenities. These fees were established and collected months before the amenities were complete. There has not been a voted home association for the property; everything has been decided by the property management with no residential input.

It's understandable for the community clubhouse to require a reasonable deposit for rental in case damage occurs and the facility is not cleaned after an event/activity. It is unreasonable for residents who pay home association fees to also pay an additional nonrefundable fee of $100 for usage of their community's clubhouse.

There is no specific explanation as to what the nonrefundable fee covers. There is no justification in KB Homes covenant which was given to residents before closing of the property. The nonrefundable fee is paid to Parkside Homeowners Association, but the residents are responsible for most of the operations of the clubhouse during rental, including making sure it has been cleaned afterwards and paying annual HOA fees to cover the upkeep of the grounds and expenses such as lighting, water, etc.
Here is the breakdown of our annual HOA fees which visibly shows that the residents are paying for the building, maintenance, expenses, and improvements for clubhouse. The question is, why are we paying a $100 rental fee for our community's clubhouse?
