WHY DO I NOT GET MAIL ADDRESSED TO ME AND INSTEAD TO THE CURRENT HOMEOWNER?

An encumbrance to the RA / HOA is placed upon the Certificate of Title to the house, therefore it’s addressed to the current homeowner of the house.

WHY AREN’T THE ANNUAL PACKAGES E-MAILED OUT TO RESIDENTS?

Due to the nature of email there is no way to guarantee that emails are delivered to their intended recipients. Also because email addresses can change frequently it is impractical to keep an updated list of email addresses for 2000+ households.
