Class Action lawsuit on behalf of 23,167 against the Recreation Centers of Sun City (RCSC) which could restrict or eliminate the ability for Terravita Country Club to charge a Capital Improvement Transfer Fee (which they call a Property Improvement Fee, or PIF):
Pre-trial conference begins November 6, 2017
This lawsuit covers many issues, most of them unique to Sun City. The challenge to Transfer Fees is broader reaching. The lawfirm arguing to protect the homeowners is Dessaulles. Carpenter, Hazlewood, also TCA and TCC attorneys, is representing the HOA board.
No matter how this case is resolved, expect it to bring more attention to the use of transfer fees, which communities charge them and how much they are.
