How Can You Reduce or Avoid Savannah Lakes Village Fees?

While you cannot get out of your property ownership association dues, you can reduce fees in other ways.

  1. Read your POA/HOA bylaws. Understand your rights and responsibilities. This will help you avoid fines, understand when or why fees might change, and who you should reach out to for concerns.
  2. Do the math. If you don't live full time in Savannah Lakes Village, it may be cheaper to pay daily rates for some amenities than for an annual membership.
  3. Appeal to the POA/HOA board if you are experiencing a temporary hardship. You may be able to negotiate a later payment or arrange a payment plan. It might be easier for them to add on late fees or work with you than to pursue any action against you if you go directly to them first.
  4. Join the board. You may not be able to get an executive role, but if you can get on a committee you may have more influence on how funds are used and how/when fees are raised.
  5. Make your concerns known. Even if you don't join the board, you should speak up about issues, concerns or rising fees. Check your bylaws if you need to find the right committee or member to contact regarding specific issues, or to find out how to file a complaint.
