TGHA collects annual dues from 517 registered homeowners who have property within Terwillegar Greens (i.e., Taylor Green, Taylor Cove, Taylor Close and Towne Centre Boulevard) and Terwillegar Gardens (i.e., Tegler Gate, Tegler Green, Tory Road, Tory View, Tory Crescent, Tory Point, Todd Link, Todd Court, Todd Landing, Thompson Court, Thompson Place, Thorogood Lane, Thorogood Close and Devonshire Village).
Notices are usually issued March 1 to cover expenses incurred that calendar year. Terwillegar Green homeowners pay $175 per year; Terwillegar Garden homeowners pay $225 per year. These amounts are determined by the TGHA Board of Directors as per the bylaws. They increased $25 in 2013 to cover the rising cost of services and expenses.
Unless otherwise requested, due notice letters are sent directly to the property of the homeowner who owns the property on March 1. Opting out of the association is not an option. Payment must be made within 30 days (e.g., by March 31) to avoid penalties. Homeowners who expect to be away during that period may submit a post-dated cheque to avoid late payment interest charges.
Payments may be made by cheque or through PayPal. If the latter option is chosen, a PayPal account is not required. TGHA does not accept direct credit card payments at this time.
Cheques must be sent to Terwillegar Gardens Homeowners Association at #336, 14032 - 23 Avenue, Edmonton Alberta T6R 3L6.
Account status information is available by emailing the Property Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (780) 905 - 6309. Please include the property address and your name/name of the homeowner in your request. A response will be provided within 3-4 business days.
Dues are a rent charge against the title of your property. This rent charge is registered with Alberta Land Titles. Non-payment of dues is not an option. Dues must be paid. This is fully enforceable.
Homeowners who do not pay dues by the due date specified in the notice letter (e.g., March 31) begin to incur a compounding interest charge of 16% each year as per Bylaws Section 4.10. Registered homeowners, not renters, are responsible for ensuring remittance.
Outstanding dues transfer with the property title when a house is sold so ensure all TGHA dues are paid before the sale is final. This rent charge has first priority on the title ahead of any mortgaging financial institution. Homeowners who buy or sell their home during the year will have their dues prorated by lawyers handling the sale.
Several actions, beyond charging interest, may be taken against a homeowner who has not paid their dues. This includes employing collections services and foreclosure proceedings. Both of these actions have been successfully undertaken in the past. TGHA is entitled to recover attorney fees and all legal costs incurred, in addition to the underlying debt, including all interest charges.
Collected dues pay for maintenance (e.g., grass mowing, garbage pick-up, weeding, watering and tree replacement), improvements (e.g., landscaping, fence painting), professional services (e.g., property manager, banking and accounting services), utilities and administration (e.g., office supplies, rentals). For every $1.00 of dues collected, about $.47 pays for maintenance, $.32 pays for improvements, $.14 pays for services, $.04 pays for utilities, and $.03 pays for office supplies and rentals.
Membership dues ensure we have an attractive neighbourhood with amenities such as the pond, stream, orchard, gardens, entrances and gazebo to enjoy and they preserve property values in our neighbourhood. Memberships collectively give us a stronger voice to request services and improve our neighbourhood. Drive around our neighbourhood and several others to rediscover the great place in which we live.
