Dear Mr. Sylvester:
We refer to our previous letters of May 15th, 2006 and May 19th, 2009, to the Grenada Bar Association on the above-mentioned matter.
After a long period of compliance, it appears that once again we are experiencing situations where persons are purchasing lots within the Fort Jeudy Development, only to discover that there are outstanding maintenance fees payable on their newly purchased lot.
It would appear that the Attorneys involved in the conveyance of lots in Fort Jeudy have not been querying, collecting and/or ensuring settlement of any outstanding maintenance fees (non-payment of which constitute a breach of covenant) on the lot during the conveyance process in order to ensure a free and clear transfer of the property.
Accordingly, FJA requests the circulation of this letter to members of the Grenada Bar Association to ensure that they are all aware of the following:
- There are several lots within the Fort Jeudy Development with outstanding maintenance fees, which constitute a breach of covenant, and should be settled as part of the conveyancing process.
- As any unpaid maintenance fees constitute a breach of covenant, this should be brought to the attention of prospective purchasers prior to conveyance to make them aware of any potential liabilities.
- The Fort Jeudy Association can and should be consulted during the conveyance process to determine whether there are outstanding maintenance fees applicable to a particular lot.
We also kindly request to be informed of the contact details of New Owners of conveyed lots within the Fort Jeudy Development for the purposes of maintaining accurate records and facilitating necessary communication with the New Lot Owners.
This information will be treated confidentially and solely for the above-referenced purposes.
We appreciate your cooperation in this matter, and look forward to a productive collaboration between the Grenada Bar Association and the Fort Jeudy Association.
President, Fort Jeudy Association lnc.
