The HOA has chosen to use Esquire Management to assist with collecting fees and providing support to the Board. All outstanding fees for the current year were due May 31st, so if you have not paid them or you have any questions regarding your fees, please contact the management company immediately. As a homeowner, you cannot “opt out” of the Association fees because there is a registered encumbrance on your property and a legal requirement to pay. The fees collected by the HOA will be used to maintain our neighbourhood and supplement the City of Edmonton‘s services. Until now, the developer has provided some of these services at no cost to the home owners. These fees could include helping to build playgrounds, common fence painting, extra mowing, removal of weeds, or addition of flowers in common areas.

Q. I'm selling my home, who should I inform of The Hamptons HOA?
While there is an encumbrance on the Property Title, it is up to the Property Owner to read their title and keep it current.

If you are selling your house, it would be a good idea to tell your Real Estate Broker and Attorney that the property is in a HOA. As well, it’s a good idea that you inform Esquire Management Group that the property is changing hands.

It’s also a good idea to notify the agent of the fees are and the due date is May 31 of each year.

If there is a Caveat registered on the Title of the Property, the Title cannot change hands until the Caveat is discharged in full, including the Arrears dues, Caveat filing fee, interest and collections fees if applicable.

Please keep your fees up to date.

Q. How was the HOA established?
At the time The Hamptons was developed and subdivided, an encumbrance and restrictive covenant was registered against each land title in favour of the Homeowners Association (HOA).

The HOA is an incorporated non-profit Society in the Province of Alberta and is governed by Societies Act.
