Just saw the 2012 maintenance fees for my unit. Looks like they went up less than one percent from last year, which is great. Here is the info:

2 Bedroom, Las Vegas (Karen), Gold Season, $852 excluding ARDA and Club dues.

Are the club dues billed separately? Can you pay them online too?

South Beach - 4800 pts (1 Bedroom) - Platinum Season

Maintenance Fee and Tax Breakdown

2012 Operating Fee $687.95 (up 2.1%)
2012 Reserve Fee $147.22 (up 4.2%)
Real Estate Taxes $80.55 (up 15.7%)

Not bad. I voted to fully fund the reserve however I don't think the resolution passed as this is a small increase in reserve funding.

Usually club dues are billed together with your MF.
Karen Ave. had a renovation and had a high reserve last year.
Maybe this year it went back to normal?

Club Dues of $119.00 were also billed but I did not include them in the above because they were not resort specific.

I also voted to fully fund the reserve. We may have been the only two votes in favor.

Operating Fee $610.35

My club dues are on my LV bill.

Why are the Reserve fee & Real Estate taxes higher on my bill?

Our Sea World fees are similar to those of Brkian, but not entirely. This is for a 2 br Platinum, which as I understand should have been the same as for the 2 br Gold, which it is, but not for the taxes.

We are at our home resort (Charter Club of Marco Beach) right now-budget was approved last week. Maintenance will be $917 next year. Not sure how it breaks down for taxes, etc. We own 2 weeks and maintenance is slightly different for each due to taxes (I think that taxes for 1 building may be slightly higher. This is a 3.4% increase. They are planning on redoing one (or both-not sure) bathrooms next year. Kitchens and living rooms have been redone since we were here in May of 2010 and look great! This sure beats being at the office :)

It's higher by $65. Just guessing but perhaps you subscribe to an automatic billing? Vacation insurance? Annual auto-home week reservation?

but why? automatic billing? Vacation insurance? Annual auto-home week reservation? NO NO and NO.

I own OVS I (I think, i got the bill in the mail, but don't have it with me. When I check online it says OVS I in one place and OVS II in the other.

Ok. I'm impressed. :)
My maiden name is vander Hulst. My parents were both born in the Nederlands and immigrated to Canada in the 50s. I have a general verbal understanding of about 75% of the language. My spelling and reading is non existent, I have to sound out the words and see if when hearing them I understand what they mean. I really understand what is like to be illiterate. I had to look up the spelling.
