MUIRFIELD NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

Annual Assessment

For the purpose of providing funds for operating expenses and capital improvements, the Board of Directors has authorized collection of an annual assessment per Article 2 of the Warranty Deed.

One of the many things the assessment is used for is the operation and maintenance of Muirfield amenities. Consequently, Muirfield residents are not required to pay a separate fee to use the amenities.

The annual assessment rate is $2.20 per $1,000 of the fair market value as placed on the property by the county auditor on or around January 1 of each year. The selling or buying price of the property is never used to calculate the amount. The formula below will help figure out the amount. Real estate agents may call the Association for the exact amount.

The county auditor will re-assess every property in the county every three years. Since the annual assessment is based on the value of the property as assigned by the auditor, the assessment amount may go up or down.

Muirfield Association annual assessment invoices will be sent on Friday, January 31, 2020.

The assessment will be due Monday, March 2, 2020.

There are more payment methods available than ever, including the ability to pay online by eCheck, debit or credit!

Design Review Reminders

Owners are required to apply for approval of proposed projects and the MDCC must approve or disapprove the plans. All new construction, exterior additions, remodeling or alterations, as well as changes to landscaping must be reviewed and approved in writing by the MDCC before the project begins. All requests for variances from the Design Standards or any other rule or regulation must also be made in writing. All variances granted shall be considered unique and will not set a precedent for future decisions by the MDCC.

Owners will be best equipped for project approval by selecting the recommended materials and submitting all the required samples, pictures and drawings in a timely fashion. Each project is unique as are the submission requirements. Some projects may require an architect, a general contractor and professional drawings. The more information provided, the easier it is for the MDCC to understand the project concept and intention.

MUIRFIELD FAQs

Annual assessment invoices will be mailed/emailed on Friday, January 31. Residents on paper communications should look for a white, business size envelope in the mail. Residents on electronic communications should have received an email that may look like spam. The email came from “Muirfield Association Management, LLC” and the title is “Your Account Statement is Ready”. Here's what the body of the email looks like. Watch your spam and deleted items!

The annual assessment rate is $2.20 per $1,000 of the fair market value of the property as determined on or about January 1 of each year by the County Auditor. In light of the fact that so many property values went up, the board of directors decreased the amount of the assessment from $2.25 per $1,000 to the new $2.20 per $1,000 as of last year's billing.

The assessment is billed one year in arrears, similar to property taxes. The assessment being billed in 2019 is for the year 2018.

To calculate the annual assessment amount, take the fair market value as placed on the property by the county auditor and multiply it times .0022 to get the annual assessment. For example, if the fair market value of a property as of January 1 is $300,000, the invoice for the prior year (January 1 through December 31) will be $660.00.

If you have an overpayment or underpayment from the previous year, this amount should reflect on your invoice. Please call the office if you have questions.
