C.O.P.S News - Sign Ups Needed for
Women's Self-Defense Class
As we briefly discussed at the annual meeting, Officer Diffenbacher
and others from his precinct are available to teach a Women’s
Self-Defense Class and I would like to have one this summer. If you
are interested in this class,
send me an email so that I can gauge how many are interested. We
are tentatively scheduling the class for Friday, June 6th at 7pm.
Homeowners' Dues & Directory Updates
The Board has posted an updated HOA Dues
Late Payment Policy. If you are behind in your dues,
interest is now being added each month on the first of the month to
your overdue balance. If you do not pay in full by June 30, the Royal
Oaks Board will attach a lien to your property. Please be sure you
understand this policy - your good credit depends upon it. Contact
the Treasurer to obtain your balance, including interest, so that
your account is brought current. YOU MAY NOT USE ANY ROEHA
FACILITY, including the pool, playground, tennis courts or
clubhouse, until your dues, including interest, expenses and legal
fees, are paid in full.
The 2014 Royal Oaks Directory is now available. It will be
emailed to all residents who are current with their HOA dues. Take a
look at your family's listing. If your email or phone numbers have
changed, PLEASE update your information by sending us a
Customer Service Shortcuts
Most of us have experienced the long wait times and the endless
menus trying to navigate corporate customer service phone lines. To
speak to a live person, you can try saying "customer service" or
pressing "0." But that doesn't always work.
The website Gethuman.com lists shortcuts to getting the help you
want… For example, if you want to get a person at Verizon Wireless –
one of the companies with a difficult-to-figure-out trick – enter
your mobile number and then press the pound key.
The site also allows you to request a call back from some customer
service lines… you don't have to wait on hold. Just enter your phone
number with Gethuman (which doesn't store it), and you'll receive a
call within minutes. No waiting.

Annual Garage Sale
Beth Prince has agreed to
organize a neighborhood garage sale. Who is interested? It's a good
way to make money and do spring cleaning at the same time. The HOA
places the ads and signs to encourage traffic, and homeowners are
encouraged to decorate their mailboxes and join the fun. Beth will
set a date in the near future. Let her know if you want to
Unpaid Dues Listings
The Board is in the process of calling residents who have not
paid their dues. Some have just forgotten. Others are setting up
payment plans. Interest will be applied at the rate of 1.5% per
month, beginning on March 1. Liens will be filed after June 30 on unpaid
We have four homeowners who are several years in arrears. We have
hired an attorney to collect the money or take them to court. In the
event that we are successful, the homeowners will be responsible for
legal fees as well as cumulative dues and interest. Georgia has
strong precedents for ruling in favor of Homeowners Associations,
and we will be able to garnish wages to collect the dues, court
costs and legal fees associated with collections. The Unpaid Dues
Policy is posted on the Key Info page.
Reminder: You may NOT use the common areas, such
as pool, clubhouse, playground, and tennis courts, if you are not current with
your dues. If you haven’t paid, then please make arrangements
with David White. We want everyone
to enjoy our amenities.
