christopherwilliams2,

Where do I start my friend....

Lots of break ins.... lots of crime. The latest was that a couple were tied up in their home, they loaded all the stuff in their house in their ford van and drove out of the compound with it.

They broke into a woman's house, took off her ring from her finger while she slept, raided the house and left without even waking anyone.

They broke into my neighbor at the back of me, walked out with a 42" LCD, the drugged the couple while they slept and took the woman's phone from under her pillow.

This is just a few of the cases we have had here...

HCL is the biggest bandit. They charge a management fees and dont maintain anything. They advertised 24/7 security but we have none, just a guy driving around with some flashing lights every 2 hours or so.

Then there is the flooding.... last rainy season people were under a couple feet of water.... on the highway side.

Then there are the flies and the horrid smell from the farms close by.

The area has potential to be a nice community the people are nice, very professional and friendly. The looks of the place is getting better as people start to fix up their places. HCL advertised a pool and clubhouse that is non existent and a jogging track too that my 4x4 cant even pass through.

I say give it 5 years and if we not thief out by then the place will at least be looking up to standard....

Any other questions send a PM.

I serious fellas..... and not only that but I and alot of other people in here paid the extra to get a house in here because we thought it would have been safe and security would have been provided as part of the package.... especially with the ~$700 management fees we have to pay every month.

Mind you also.... we tried to protest by not paying the fees and guess what HCL hired a debt collector and sent them to collect their money.

Also we getting double backlash cause we pay management fees to maintain the roads and drains and sidewalks in here and have to pay government property tax come march too even though the govt dont provide any maintenance in here..... :(

NO LEGAL RECOURSE....


We all foolishly signed documents that bind us to pay the management fees and guess what they can take our house if we dont............. :evil:

They tried to raise the fees to almost a grand a month, but some lawyers in here did some magic and prevented that. Instead they raised it by $5

Basically the fees go to pay the community manager who mind you receives a healthy $20,000.00 a month and a couple clerks whose job is to collect this money and provide receipts etc.....

They claim that the community will be able to take over the management in 7 years or so.... but I have heard from other HCL communities that HCL will do all in their power to hold on to this cash cow.....

buh what is this!!! so who is to tell them how high to carry these fees???
ah thousand dollars!!! dat is grocery for my family for the month!

those docs you signed....do they state the time limit these fees should be paid to HCL and when your chosen community manager takes over??
I would really like to know WHAT these fees are used for....

the real estate team says that they have about 100 homes in there so far and 200 home/land owners by the end of 2010.

200 * $700 ah month = $140,000 !
that WAY MORE than enough to hire 10 security (5 on the job everyday)

that sheit goes on in other gated communites owned by HCL, my aunt and a few others paid cash for their houses in sunrise park some years aback and were still forced to pay maintenance and other fees and still have to cut her own grass etc. The commitee is a joke led by a few fraudsters who cant even afford to pay their monthly installments but they are getting a cut from the fees since their relatives provide some of the services

The Galdiator speaks the truth about the crossings. I know of one owner that is ketching their royal to get thier unit sold after HCL kindly informed them that they cant repaint the outside fo their home, plus the issues The Gladiator speaks of.

I also know of someone that lives in the Millennium Park area and they complain about "personal items" being lifted from their locations (ie the damm security guards and dem teeefing) without knowledge and consent. But apart from that issue, they have no complaints about living within that particular gated community.

You also need to be wary of the quality of construction of the units by HCL.

The Syrians have spoken.

added to that, there were attempts last yr by us Syrians to set up CCTV camera systems within the Gated communities and ti was met with serious opposition by HCL. These are measures that the residents of the gated Communities are prepared to pay for out of pocket.

The Syrians thinks something is fishy withing the HCL ranks.

too many wanna be gated communities being setup around the country

only as a marketing gimmick for sales



always read the fine print with a lawyer before investing as there are loopholes which you may not be able to get out of

there is a proposal being offered wehre i am at present to convert to a gated community however the bottom line is that not everyone is going to invest in additional monthtly payments especially when we all await the enw property tax

as dave said we pay for a gateman and not a security guard

the existing security company that does patrols and paid for by some residents are a joke

the local police station has formerly said they are strapped for resources and rsident should do as much as they can to protect thier property

but

shoot one bandit and the police all up in yuh house to sieze yuh gun and ammunitation and take you down to the station


its nice however to see a bandit mauled by your dogs in yuh yard from time to time though

They collect nearly 150 thousand in 'maintenance fees' every month...I do not understand why the security at least could be of some proper level!
I need to chat with the people selling these lots and homes because this seems highly disrespectful to hard working people paying a mortgage and getting SQUAT in return!
