Assessments
  • chevron_rightWhy do I pay assessments to the Stone Oak POA?
    Stone Oak is a master-planned community.  Therefore, all property owners within Stone Oak POA boundaries pay assessments to the Stone Oak POA.  Residential property owners also pay assessments to their neighborhood HOA.  Some neighborhoods have a third HOA that manages their pool or recreational area. 
     
    One of the benefits of living or having a business in a master-planned community is everyone must follow the same set of restrictions, thus ensuring your property values.  For example, Stone Oak has a strict sign policy.  This is why you do not see multiple banners or cardboard signs.  All signage must follow the Stone Oak Sign Policy- it must be submitted for review, and approved, prior to display.  
  • chevron_rightHow much are Stone Oak POA assessments? How often are they due?
    Residential assessments in the amount of $116 are due ANNUALLY.  Commercial property assessments are calculated in accordance with the Stone Oak Master Plan, and are due QUARTERLY (4 times per year) - January, April, July, and October.  Payment must be received in our office by the due date on the assessment bill.  Late fees are added to accounts with an open balance the following day.
     
    More detail regarding how assessments are calculated can be found under our “Governing Documents” tab on our website, specifically on page 23 of the “Stone Oak Second Amended Bylaws,” Article XV, Member’s Obligations.

    First, we must note that cash is never accepted in our office.  We offer several options for submitting your payment to the Stone Oak POA:
     
    1)  You can set up the payment through your bank's bill pay system.  Check with your bank, but this is usually a free service.  Please note we cannot accept electronic bank payments, therefore, your bank will issue a check, and mail it to us.  When scheduling your bill pay, we suggest allowing for a 10-day mailing time.  (For example, if the due date is the 30th, we would suggest setting the bill payment issue date in your bank's system as the 20th to allow for US Mail processing and delivery.)
     
    2)  You may mail a check or money order to our office at 19210 Huebner Road, Suite 100, San Antonio, TX 78258.  There is also a 24-hour dropbox on the right at our building entrance.  If you would like confirmation of receipt, please reach out via email to accounting@stoneoakpoa.com.  Please ensure your Stone Oak property address, or account number, are noted on your check or money order.
     
    3)  You can make your payment online, on this website's homepage.  Please ensure you are utilizing Google Chrome or Internet Explorer before initiating this process.  Simply click on the "pay online" icon found just below the photo on our home page.  This will take you out of the Stone Oak POA website, and into a payment portal set up by our bank.  While in the portal, you can make a one-time payment, but will also be given the option to set up recurring payments on a credit card.  You will need to enter your account number and the amount you wish to pay. If you need confirmation of the amount owed or your account number, please contact our office at 210-858-8508, or accounting@stoneoakpoa.com.
