In order to protect the beauty, value and ambiance of our neighborhood, a Compliance Committee made up of volunteers regularly reviews Berkshire Lakes for adherence to the governing documents. This includes common areas as well as single family homes. Those who fail to maintain their property in good condition receive a notice in writing describing their violation and giving direction for its repair. Although the purpose of the Compliance Committee and the desire of the Board is to ensure an attractive environment for all residents, occasionally a fine must be assessed.
There are 1,639 units in the Berkshire Lakes Master Association. The owner of each unit has one indivisible vote, which may be cast in all matters requiring a vote of the owners. Voting rights and procedures are described in the By-laws of the Association.
Each unit is restricted to residential use. The restrictions on their use are found in Article 12 of the Third Restated and Amended Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, Restrictions and Easements for Berkshire Lakes.
No residence may be leased for periods of less than thirty (30) days and shall not exceed three (3) rentals per year. All single family home rentals require Berkshire Lakes Master Association approval as stated in the BLMA Covenants, Article XI Section 11.1.
In addition, effective April 3, 2022 all rentals under 6 months must comply with new Collier County Code regulations. See attached document.
Regular assessments based on the Master Association’s Annual Budget are payable annually, in advance, due on the first day of January. The share of common expenses payable by each unit in 2021 is $535.00 per year.
Single-family Homeowners are not required to be a member of any other association; however, Condominiums within Berkshire Lakes require membership in their respective Associations.
No, however the BLMA Clubhouse rental for a private function requires a $250 deposit with all but the sanitizing fee returned to the renter, as long as it’s left clean upon departure.
