Stu,
Thanks for your post..
Did you buy in Legacy Park? Who are you renting it out with and how much for?
Obviously I considered long-term rental and tried and failed bit managed to negotiate with Florida choice but it was very lenghty!

Thanks for your post, I'm sorry it's taken me a while to respond
I'm glad someone like you has passion for the community and wish I could do more to help.
I always get cards inviting me to the HOA meetings but that isn't plausible. Perhaps you could suggest some form of e-mail voting? I would be happy to assist.
Any update on the HOA or the cable situation? has the cable skyrocketed? I haven't been billed by anyone since it dropped out of the HOA so do I have to organise it myself? The management firm haven't mentioned it to me.

Also, can you tell me if anything has been built in the Towns recently? when I was last there in Sep 2007, there were plans to build a medical centre and also more houses alond the side of Chelsea Drive (facing the publix supermarket diretion)

Cheers
Ian

Hi Stu, you need lo join www.top-forums.com There are many more Legacy Park homeowners on there (Mostly Highgate Park). Search for my posts, you will see I am trying to stop the rubber stamping by the management company and the Master board. As far as the Towns there has been no development for the past 3 years, Engle Homes went into bankruptcy, the Board member representing the Towns did not want to file bankruptcy for the Cable 2 1/2 years ago when it was first bought up because they were using the Cable as a selling tool at the other owners expense. Other board members dragged it on because they needed to have the cable for STR of there homes at other owners expense. If the budget would have been done correctly Legacy Park would have gone into bankruptcy 2 1/2 years ago, thus getting rid of the bulk cable bill which was crushing Legacy Park, and then there would be about $_ _ _, _ _ _.00 in reserves instead of $_, _ _ _.00. Right now one of the irrigation wells is completely out of commission and the other is on its way out, thus they will need two new wells and there is no money to fund them. In addition the developer who screwed up LP in the first place is now trying to swap the two parcels next to the Towns. He wants the front one by US 27 to be residential and the other one on the other side of the wall of the Towns pool to be commercial. He claims it was a recording error. We maintain if that was the case why has there been a 20'x20' for sale sign posted in front for 6 years? He had plenty of time to change it while he was still in control, now he wants to put it in the middle of LP which would increase traffic, crime etc. I have a petition and the letter from the county posted on www.top-forums.com.

All the best to you,

SLP

Hi there, I'm considering buying a townhouse in Legacy Park on Weymouth Way or Chelsea Drive for rental investment. Reading your posts I'm getting concerned about the HOA. What is the situation now? What are the consequences of the HOA becoming bankrupt? Any increase in the HOA fee to expect?
Any idea of the rental market? How much do you think I coud rent a 2/2.5 townhouse for?
Any advice greatly appreciated!
All the best,
P
