Association Fees

The quarterly assessments at Venetian Falls HOA cover a variety of services and community expenses.  Generally speaking, the HOA is responsible for maintaining all of the common areas, which include the clubhouse and amenity campus, the roadways and gates, the ponds and preserves, the common area sidewalks and community walls and entrances, plus the large monument signs and waterfalls at the main entrance to the community.  The assessments also include basic cable service to all 700 homes in the community. Effective January 2022, internet service will also be included with the HOA fee. Landscape maintenance is also included in the maintenance fee, for all 700 homes.  This includes mowing, weeding, edging, mulching, and irrigation service and maintenance.  Tree and shrub trimming is included for specimens that were originally installed by the builder.  Trees and shrubs that have been planted by homeowners are not included in the landscape contract and must be maintained by the homeowners directly.  Typically, shrubs along the side and/or in the rear yard are the homeowner’s responsibility. Quarterly assessments include roof washing for all 700 homes, on a four-year rotation.  Assessments also cover exterior painting of villas (not detached single family homes) on an eight-year rotation.   Reserves are also funded through quarterly assessments.  Reserve funds pay for capital repairs and replacements like irrigation pumps, pool resurfacing, etc.
