Sample Statement:


Automatic Deductions:

Community Specialists offers an automatic deduction (auto-debit) service for your monthly payment. No fees are charged by Community Specialists for this service. You will continue to receive a monthly statement showing the amount that will be deducted. The outstanding balance reflected on your statement will automatically be withdrawn from your bank account between the 5th and 10th of each month. Your bank account must hold the full amount reflected on your statement in available funds. If there are insufficient funds in your account, your bank may reject the payment for insufficient funds. If this occurs, you may be assessed late fees by the association and bank fees by your bank. You may discontinue the auto-debit service at any time by notifying us or the onsite Management Office.

If you wish to take advantage of our auto debit service, complete, sign and date an authorization form and return it with a voided check to our office. If we receive your auto debit enrollment form by the 15th of the month, the service will begin the following month. If you currently have your monthly payment automatically withdrawn, we will still need to have you complete an authorization form and provide a voided check (if possible).
