Beginning January 1, 2016, your monthly statement will have a new payment address on the remittance portion you send with your payment. Please note this new address and make the appropriate adjustments to assure your payment is received in a timely manner. Our new Banking and Accounting Software partnership means utilizing a "Lock Box" service to expedite the posting and processing of homeowner payments.  If you are making payments for multiple units please include each pay stub with your payment to assure accurate posting to the correct account.

Please send payments to the following address using the provided payment stub and envelope: 

«Your Association Name»

PO Box 611600

IMPORTANT: Please do not send any additional correspondence along with your payment to the San Jose "Lock Box" location. Including additional notes or correspondence will delay the processing of your payments and comments might not reach the appropriate staff members. Should you have any questions, concerns, or inquiries please direct them to our La Mesa address, phone, email, or speak with your Board of Directors. (Drop-off payments will still be accepted at our office in La Mesa.)
