BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — There is a warning to anyone who believes it’s okay to disregard the fees, dues, or assessments billed by your homeowners association or country club in Florida. If you don’t pay, you may find yourself in court — heading down a road towards foreclosure.

That’s where Boca Raton resident Nicole Locantro finds herself on Friday. Woodfield Country Club’s Briarcliff subdivision is suing the homeowner for allegedly not paying assessments that she owes the HOA. The suit was just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court.

According to the filing, Locanto owes Woodfield $10,215. The fees are based on two quarterly maintenance assessments of $2,600, one quarterly maintenance assessment of $2,800, late fees and interest fees. The unpaid balance dates back nearly a year.

The suit seeks immediate payment of the back due amount, or approval to move the home into foreclosure. From the suit: ”Plaintiff Association is empowered to bring an action to foreclose its lien against the subject lot in the manner a mortgage of real property is foreclosed and may also bring an action to recover a money judgment for the unpaid assessments without waiving any claim of lien.”

Briarcliffe at Woodfield is managed by Campbell Property Management which court records indicate made several attempts to collect the debt from Locantro. The home, located at 4107 Briarcliff Circle, was purchased by Locantro in June of 2016 for $575,000.

Homeowners in Woodfield are required to pay an initiation and first year membership fee between $50,000 and $100,000, plus annual membership dues ranging from approximately $18,000 to $25,000, depending on level of club access. Those dues are in addition to homeowner association maintenance fees of $2,800 per quarter.

ED NOTE: An early version of this story stated “Woodfield Country Club” was suing the homeowner. We were reminded by Woodfield that the Country Club and its Homeowner Associations are separate entities. The specific HOA is the ”Briarcliff at Woodfield” association. We thank Woodfield for reaching out.
