What is my Assessment Rate?
Payments are due quarterly on the 1st of September, December, March and June. Coupon booklets are the only billing provided each year to Homeowners, and are mailed out early August. The coupon booklet is mailed as a invoice to all Homeowners regardless of enrollment in our direct debit program. If you do not receive the coupon book or misplace the booklet you may request replacement coupons.
See the Assessment Rates Roster for payment information according to street and subdivision, and standard payment amount charged quarterly.
How is the rate established?
Assessments are established each year by the Board of Directors as part of their approval of the Association annual budget.
The proposed budget is published in the bi-monthly magazine, Lake Ridge Today, and the Board approves a final budget in July for the upcoming fiscal year.
