HOME RESALE/REFINANCE INFORMATION
If you are in the process of selling or refinancing your home in Quail Creek, please read through the following information to help understand the POA requirements to ensure that any liens related to your property are correctly released before closing. If you own a villa, you will need to get a POA demand from the Master POA, as discussed here, as well as one through the Villas management company.
In order to sell or refinance your home, your title company and/or mortgage lender will need documentation from the POA confirming any unpaid balances and/or violations connected to your property. In most cases, the title company requests this directly from the POA after the contract is signed. It is not necessary to contact the POA to start this process unless it is requested by your mortgage or title company.
The POA has set up the following website to initiate all POA resale/refinance requests: https://robson.condocerts.com
There are fees related to these requests:
- Resale (Processed within 10 days):
- Disclosure Fee - $50 (Generally paid by the Seller)
- Administrative Fee - $350 (Generally paid by the Buyer)
- Total Document Fees - $400.00
- If you need the demand faster than 10 days, there is a 72 Hour Rush option available for an additional $100
- Community Enhancement Fee – Equal to the annual dues rate for the current year (this is a onetime fee generally paid by the buyer that was voted on by the homeowners in 2019. All funds collected are being held in a separate account for future enhancements to the community.)
- Disclosure Fee - $200
