Q. Does this community have an entry fee or will I actually own my patio home?
You will own your home which you will purchase from the home-builder (or, after the community is fully-occupied, from a resident who wishes to sell a home).
Q. Are there any health or financial criteria for purchasing a patio home?
Eskaton Village Roseville is an age-restricted community requiring that all residents be 55 or older (with the exception of a younger spouse of a 55+ resident). Neither Eskaton nor the home builder will screen home buyers on the basis of health or financial status. If you are borrowing money to purchase your home, the lender may establish financial criteria for the mortgage.
Q. Why is there a homeowners association? Must I belong to the association?
The homeowners association is designed to meet the interest of many retirees in maintenance-free living. The association fees will pay for street and grounds maintenance, exterior home maintenance, fitness center operation, onsite shuttle and other services. Association membership is required of all homeowners.
Q. How will the homeowners association fees be set? Will the fees be raised in the future?
The association fees are based on standards established by the California Department of Real Estate to ensure that sufficient funds are available to meet the association's obligation to provide maintenance and other services. Changes in the cost of providing services will determine when fees must be increased. The Department of Real Estate limits how much association fees can be increased each year.
Q. Will there be CC&Rs (codes, covenants and restrictions) that control what I can do with my property?
Yes. To ensure that Eskaton Village Roseville is well-maintained and is managed in the best interests of all the residents, there will be requirements for the exterior appearance of homes, the control of pets, vehicle parking, etc. We encourage potential home buyers to become familiar with the CC&Rs prior to making a home purchase.
Q. Can I make changes to the interior of my home?
Yes. As a homeowner, you can make any changes to the inside of your home that meet construction codes and that do not affect the exterior appearance of your home.
Q. I understand that, because all of the grounds are maintained in common, there will not be fences between the homes. May I have a fence around my patio?
Yes. The home builder will offer a standard patio enclosure option to home buyers.
Q. What optional services will be available to home owners on a fee-for-service basis?
