Daybreak HOA faces $23M assessment, some owners at risk of losing homes
By Deborah Goonan, Independent American Communities
Owners of relatively new homes in Daybreak Townhome 1 Owners Association (South Jordan, Utah) have recently learned it is going to cost more than $60,000 per home to repair extensive structural damage caused by water infiltration. Although the townhouses are less than a decade old, homeowners report a long list of problems with leaky windows and roofs, damaged siding, and lack of insulation.
The news comes as a shock to many homeowners, who are reportedly concerned that assessment increases will make their homes unaffordable.
The HOA has filed a lawsuit against Holmes Homes and Hamlet Homes, but the Association cannot wait for the outcome of that litigation before they begin making repairs.
