RPD:  What is the basis for your statement that the tenants rent covers HOA 
dues.  Is it part of your by laws or something else?  Regine

How does that work, exactly?  The model I am familiar with is that assessments 
are levied on dwelling units, more or less in proportion to their size and/or 
value.  Unless the landlord has decided to fulfill his/her assessment 
obligation as a charitable contribution, then the tenant’s rent covers the 
assessment share, and the tenant is indeed paying “dues”, albeit indirectly.
