Stay in Good Standing

To stay in good standing with the Lakes Master Homeowner’s Association (LMHA) and to ensure ongoing access to all that The Lakes has to offer—including our community facilities, programs, and events—it’s important for homeowners to pay quarterly assessments.

Assessments are due on the 1st day of each quarter. If your payment is not received and posted to your account by the 15th day of the quarter, you’ll incur a late fee on the 16th day. Whenever you mail a check or set up automated payments, make sure you take into account the time it takes for your payment to arrive by mail plus the time it takes for our bank to post it to your account. We suggest giving yourself a buffer of at least 10 days.

How to pay assessments

Let the LMHA directly debit your account

Fill out this form and we’ll set up a direct debit from your checking account each quarter. Enrollment forms received by the LMHA by the 15th day of the quarter will be established for automatic withdraw the following quarter.

Once established, we’ll debit your checking account between the 5th and 10th day of each quarter. This is the best way to know that your payment will be posted on time each month.

Set up automatic payments through your bank

Before you log in to your bank’s website or app to set up automatic payments, make sure you have your LMHA account number ready. You can find it on your quarterly assessment statement. You’ll also need this payment address: PO Box 64685, Phoenix, AZ 85082-4685.

Payments must be posted to your LMHA assessment account by the 15th day of the quarter to avoid late fees. Schedule your payment delivery date at least 10 days prior to this to ensure enough time for mailing and processing.

Make a one-time payment online

Schedule a one-time payment through C-PropertyPay. You can charge your credit or debit card, or have money taken directly out of your checking account. If you pay with a credit or debit card, the bank will charge you a 2.95% processing fee. It’s free to use if you pay using your checking or savings account.

Go to the C-PropertyPay website, then select the “Pay Now” button; you don’t need to register.

How to access your account info

Use Village Management Software (also called VMS) to access detailed information about your assessment account, like your payment history, outstanding balances, etc. It’s the system our accounting team uses, so it’s live data you’re looking at when you’re logged in.

If you’ve never used VMS before, email our Accounting Team to start the registration process. In your email, put “VMS Client Online Registration” in the subject line and include your account number, which you can find on your assessment statement.
