IMPORTANT FACTS TO BE CONSIDERED

MEMBERSHIP IS PERMANENT

As with any typical property owner association, the Lake Association membership is a permanent aspect of ownership of the lot or condominium. If you sell the lot or condominium, the new owner will automatically be a member of the Lake Association. This assures that the Lake Association will not get smaller; it can only grow larger, providing a large membership base to share the costs of operation the Lake in future years.

LAKE ELIGIBLE HOMES (BUILT BEFORE 1978)

LMVA was established as a Homeowners Association (HOA) in March 1977. The Mission Viejo Company dedicated Lake Mission Viejo to the Association as a California non-profit corporation consisting of those property owners within the ultimate boundaries of the Mission Viejo planned community.

Lake Eligible Homes were among the first 12,000 homes built by the Mission Viejo Company in the 1960s and early ‘70s. Another 18,000 homes were built after the Lake’s creation. Since these Lake Eligible Homes were built and occupied before the Lake was established, the original homeowner was offered the chance to belong. The offer remains open for these homes to join the Lake Mission Viejo Association.

If membership sounds appealing to you, please contact the Membership Office to set up an appointment. All owners must be present to sign documents to add their home to the Association. Owners are required to bring a copy of the recorded Grant Deed and their Drivers’ Licenses for processing. A Membership Counselor will explain the rules and privileges and will take photo IDs. The pro-rate assessment and a one-time $100 orientation fee will be due at this time. Family members ages 18+ are required to show proof of residency.  Membership is permanent to the home and transfers to the buyer when the home sells.

MEMBERSHIP IS NON-TRANSFERABLE

Membership is permanently associated with a lot or condominium.  However, membership privileges may be temporarily transferred to a bonafide tenant of a member, but the obligation to pay assessments remains with the legal owner.
