Hi All

We are wanting to consider Bellalago for a home purchase but are concerned regarding restrictions about building a fence for our dogs or planting fruit trees, etc. Does anyone know where I can get a copy of HOA restrictions/laws or the community covenants?

p.s. Could you also tell me what is included in the HOA fees as they seem to be higher than most we have seen. Thx!

The Osceola County Clerk of Courts, (osceolaclerk.com) Recording Division, Land Records/Research, Search for the subdivision and you should find the records. You can print from this site for free. Or go to the Clerks Office and request a copy. They will have a page fee for the printout.

The HOA docs will clearly state what is included in the HOA fees. Remember in Bellalago, there is a master association and a neighborhood association.

If you are buying a home, you can ask for a copy of the docs prior to closing and make your contract contingent on receiving and reviewing the docs.

Thanks for the response! Does this mean there are two sets of HOA fees that you pay? I have seem some ads that list HOA of $260. Does this sound about right for the monthly dues there? I tried to go on the Osceola clerks site to see if I could get answers but it is so cumbersome. I was hoping someone had a PDF file (or the like) they cold email me with the basic restrictions, what the HOA fees are and what they cover? Thanks all!

I don't know about Bellago but I lived in Remington and we had an annual HOA Charge like you mentioned and we had a Community Development District Assessment of just over $1,000 a year that was on my tax bill. It covered all the common area maintenance, community pool, etc.

$267/mo was the last thing I was told where the HOA dues for Bellalago. You can stop by the builders office and get a copy of what the HOA includes. I beleive they cover community landscaping, the guarded gate and maintenance of the streets. The many pools, slides, courts, fields, fitness center, docks, and all the other community amenities offered. They are higher than any HOA I've seen for a single family home, but then again you are also getting ALOT of amenities.

Your agent should be able to get you a copy of the HOA covenants and find out if the community is in a CDD.
