BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Welcome to December, the time of year where HOA and Condo boards across Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach and Palm Beach County reveal how much monthly or quarterly fees will run. Is most cases, increases are normal and to be expected. But BocaNewsNow.com is already hearing from apoplectic homeowners countywide who are “outraged” that their HOA fees are going up.

Some of these homeowners live in homes valued at more than $1,000,000 and own lease so many Teslas, they can’t fit in a garage. (We love Boca!)

Among the comments we’ve received over the past few days: “we’re in a pandemic! How can the board raise fees by $100?” “What do you mean I have to pay for Christmas lights? I’m Jewish!” “ How could it possibly cost so much to have grass cut? I’ve seen postage stamps bigger than my lot.” “No one told me when I bought my house that I would have to pay quarterly dues to pay for security, tennis and the clubhouse.”

HOA and condo boards are staffed by volunteers who often work tirelessly to balance budgets and keep associates afloat. But sometimes bad choices are made and questionable — or even criminal — activity takes place.
