under construction :hi:

feel free to delete, but I suggest to remove the SVN fee (because they vary depending on # of VOIs owned) and also remove ARDA fee as they are not part of the MF.

also - it is the proposed budgets that are coming in - not the actual - those probably will not come until Dec/Jan.

how about % change from last year?

later :)

Sheraton Vistana Villages (BELLA)

PROPOSED BUDGET OF OPERATING EXPENSES FOR SVV BELLA


Standard 2br - $972.63 + $125 (SVN) = $1097.63
2br Lockoff - $1260.22 + $125 (SVN) = $1385.22

I believe the Real Estate taxes are to be billed separately.........not sure what the damage will be there, but last year the 2br was $108.98

This appears to be an increase of around $60 on the 2br Maintenance fee including taxes (considering taxes stay the same)

There is a difference between a notice of a 2012 proposed budget and a 2012 bill for MF, folks.

The Bella 2012 proposed budget will not even be up for an approval vote until the annual meeting scheduled for November 3 - this upcoming Thursday. The bill for 2012 MF cannot be generated or mailed until after the 2012 actual budget is adopted. ... eom

My SVR notice looks like a bill, smells like a bill and is a bill. It is mailed both to my home address and sitting in MSC account, clearly stating balance due and date due.

Well, then maybe for your week at SVR you have a bill. I didn't say you posted something wrong for your week at SVR. I just pointed out that until the proposed budget becomes final, the MF cannot be billed. And, I used Bella as an example.

I own at Bella (SVV, not SVR). The MFs have already been posted by woodyd70 (3 posts up) and I sure don't have a bill. All I have is a 2-page document.

Page One is entitled Notice and tells me of the Date of the Bella annual meeting (November 3) and the Agenda for that meeting. Page Two is entitled "Proposed Budget of Operating Expenses" and, later down the page, "Proposed Budget of Reserves for Replacement."

When I went to mystrcentral tonight after reading your post, the last statement that comes up is the one for 2011. The projected MF for 2012 still shows as the same amount as the 2011 MF I paid. That's because the 2012 MF at Bella has not been billed yet. ... eom

Acknowledged! :) Having said that the annual meeting for SVR (Lakes) is coming up and I suspect portion of meeting regarding MF is not something that is going to get voted on.

Has there been any news about getting 50% owner rate certificates for paying early?

Those are great - I booked 2BR villas for 3 nights (max nights on this promo) at SVV for $85! No holiday blackouts either... Awesome perk from Starwood for owners who pay early - I hope it lasts.

I asked about it a few weeks back and was told no. Still waiting on MF bills. I guess this time I can take my time paying them... :cool:
