When are monthly assessments due and what are my payment options?
Monthly assessments are due the first of each month. There are several options to pay monthly assessments:

Mail – Owners may make payment by check or money order mailed to the Association’s lockbox service at:

Brambleton Community Association
C/O FirstService Residential
P.O. Box 11983 Newark, NJ 07101

Important considerations: Checks must be made payable to “Brambleton Community Association”. Payments must reference the account number or include the payment coupon to ensure the payment is properly recorded.

Online Bill Pay – Owners may pay assessments using an online bill paying service from their personal banking institution. When establishing the service with the personal bank, use the lockbox address above as the payee address and reference your account number to ensure the payment is properly recorded.

Important considerations: There is a processing time of three business days for electronic payments. Financial institutions that do not work with partnered clearinghouses mail payment as a manual check and processing time may take longer than three business days.

Direct Debit – With this program, the owner authorizes FirstService Residential to withdraw the monthly recurring assessment amount from a designated checking or savings account. Owners can sign up for Direct Debit service online using the following link: https://www.fsresidential.com/virginia/pay-association-fees.

Important considerations: The information must be submitted directly to FirstService Residential for processing and must be received before the 15th of the month to start the draft the following month. Owners are responsible for submitting payments until such time they are notified in writing that the first payment will be processed via Direct Debit. Once established, withdrawals will occur during the first week of each month. FirstService Residential will automatically adjust the assessment amount to be debited to reflect any change in the annual assessment rate.

PayLease – This third party payment service offers owners the ability to make one-time or recurring e-check or credit card payments. Owners may log on to PayLease through the FirstService Residential website (www.fsresidential.com). The owner determines the amount to be paid, the frequency of the payment, and the day of the month payment is scheduled.

Important considerations: Account information is privately held between PayLease and the property owner. Processing fees apply for all credit card payments, as well as for one-time e-checks. Recurring e-checks are processed at no charge. PayLease payments typically take three business days to process. Expedited payment (one business day) can be requested for an additional charge. Payment amounts are established by the owner and will NOT automatically adjust each year to the appropriate assessment amount; owners must access their account to adjust payment amounts. For additional information regarding PayLease, call 866-729-5327.

***Assessment payments are NOT accepted at the Brambleton Community Association management office due to the fact they are processed as of the date of receipt at the bank or in the Accounting Department. Please note that cash cannot be accepted at the Brambleton Community Association management office or at FirstService Residential offices for payment of assessments.
