Additional Notes

Complaint: We are owners of *** ** ***** ***** Hillsboro, OR 97124 since 12/28/2013.Management Trust & Alderbrook HOA is using unfair tactics to overcharge home owners & using unfair tactics to collect the bill.HOA billed us for unpaid charges from previous owners as special assessment. Management Trust further used unfair charges to tack up our bill and send to collections instead of working with us to resolve the bill.We own a home that has HOA managed by Management Trust. We pay all our fair dues promptly. But Management Trust billed the owner for $1140 on 11/19/14 without any explanation of reason of bill and then on 11/30/14 they tacked up 650% interest charge on the bill. When Owner asked for explanation of bill, Management Trust representative kept misleading owner for several weeks (almost 2-months) by providing irrelevant arguments instead of the breakdown and explanation of bill. After much debate an old assessment notice from 2011 was provided to owner for which current owner is not responsible for. The old assessment should have been paid by previous owner. Further the Bill did not match the assessment charges to current owner. Instead of meeting minutes of HOA from 2014, old irrelevant documents were provided.Owner hired a lawyer to handle the situation, but Management Trust knowingly wasted correspondence from Lawyer and did not provide explanation of Bill. Such practices costed owners more in lawyer charges. Though the dispute was submitted to Management trust, they kept tacking charges and kept delaying the resolution in attempt to increase the bill, when they involve their lawyers for increasing bill on the house. Our lawyer told us that they should have frozen the account when dispute was received. We are concerned that our bill is being racked up unfairly and management trust is in violation of several consumer protection & real estate laws. Management trust is using harassment, arm twisting tactics to rack up bills for home owners. We have seen several homes foreclosed due to huge cha8 Account_Number: *** ** ***** ***** *

Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Refund HOA to provide detailed breakdown of current bill, provide information on 56 affected homes due to special assessment, how much money was recovered from previous owner, how much is remaining from current owner.HOA / Management trust must be penalized for charging 650%+ interest to home ownerHOA/ Management trust must pay $2000 to current owner for time value for wasting current owners time and lawyers fees billed at $400/hour.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/12/11) */ An association representative has been in contact with *** ****. Additional information was requested of him and discussions regarding this issue continue. We are hopeful that an amicable resolution will soon be reached. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 7, 2014/12/12) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) Our complaint is against TMT, instead they have put a HOA lawyer to argue with me who is arm twisting to pay or they will put a lien. Its not an amicable solution we are looking for. We proposed a settlement & refund which TMT has denied. Final Business Response /* (4000, 9, 2014/12/18) */ It is important to note that The Management Trust is contracted to carry out policies and procedures as instructed by the association's Board of Directors. We have no authority to consider demands or negotiate balance settlements. The association has also retained legal counsel to assist in the collection of the special assessment referenced by *** ****, from multiple property owners in this community. For these reasons, it was necessary that the association's attorney respond to the demands made in *** ****'s initial complaint. An agreement has been reach and the balance due is being addressed. We appreciate *** ****'s cooperation and regret any resulting frustration. We are pleased that this matter is now resolved for all parties involved.
