Due Date: Tuesday, January 31, 2018 (discount details below)

Previous: 2nd Half Payment of 2017
Due Date: Monday, July 31, 2016

Background
Twice a year, each household receives a bill that, when paid, supports the shared services that benefits the entire neighborhood. The bills are mailed twice a year and timed to arrive at the homeowner's address by January 1st for the first half and by July 1st for the second half. An attempt is made to send a bill to absentee owners, but failure to receive a bill does not release the homeowner from his/her financial obligation to pay the fee nor does it alter the time frame to enjoy the early pay discount.

Payment
Make check payable to:
Briarcliff Homeowners Association

Mail payment to:
Briarcliff Homeowners Association
P.O. Box 250022
West Bloomfield, MI 48325-0022

Payments are not accepted at board member private residences.

The semi-annual fee was raised from $275 to $310 at the December 18, 2013 Homeowners Association General Meeting. At the same time, an early pay discount of $25 was approved. Any homeowner remitting their semi-annual fee by January 31st or July 31st may take advantage of this early pay discount and pay $285.

Though these time frames are mandated by the bylaws, the Board is not insensitive to cases of hardship and is receptive to lternate payment arrangements. Any homeowner wishing to make monthly payments may submit their request in writing to the Board President or Treasurer. Such requests must include a specific payment plan including dates and amounts. Any deviation from the agreed plan may result in water termination with an additional charge to restore the household water service.
