There are a number of properties that are non-members, and thus not able to take advantage of the amenities such as the pools and tennis courts. In order to become a GHRA member, these property owners must sign the covenant, and pay a $3,500 fee.
Dues and assessments run with the property and not the owner. Any past due amounts must be paid at time of closing in order to use the GHRA facilities. This applies to any property transfer, be it a conventional sale or foreclosure.
Effective January 1, 2021, a $2,000 membership transfer fee is due at time of closing. Failure to pay would preclude new homeowners from using the pool, tennis and pickleball courts, clubhouse or dock facilities, some of the primary drawing points of Great Harbors. Make checks payable to GHRA and mail to GHRA, PO Box 988, East Falmouth, MA 02536. Any questions, please contact us at GHRAjudy@gmail.com .
Either the attorney or realtor must request the GHRA equivalent of a 6(d) letter one month prior to closing. GHRA will provide you with a letter that confirms the current status of dues and/or assessments. Please contact us at GHRAjudy@gmail.com with the subject line Treasurer.
Please notify GHRA after closing who the new property owners are and their mailing address, e-mail address and telephone numbers. It is helpful in sending invoices and newsletters to the correct owners. Email this information to GHRAjudy@gmail.com with the subject line New Owner Info.
