Q: What is an HOA and what does it cover?

A: The Jensen Lakes Homeowners Association (JLHOA) is a not-for–profit organization which manages and maintains the Jensen Lakes community amenities and activities on behalf of the Jensen Lakes property owners.

Membership in the JLHOA is mandatory and is automatically applied with the purchase of a home in Jensen Lakes. Yearly fees are due from each property owner secured via an encumbrance registered on the title of each property. The yearly fees will vary based on the level of lake access a resident enjoys (Standard, Private Lake Access Walkway & Lake Shore).

The JLHOA will initially be managed and administered by Melcor Developments. Melcor has established a Committee of Resident Directors who will work closely with the Melcor Directors to learn best governance practices and to represent the community. Elections occur at the Annual General Meeting and all property owners are invited to attend and vote on various items including the election of the Resident Directors.  For detailed inquiries please view our HOA site or contact a showhome sales representative.
