Assessments are Coming

About mid-December, you will be receiving your annual assessment invoice in the mail. The payment is due in full on January 1, 2016, and is considered delinquent if it is not received by February 1, 2016. All payments are to be mailed to a PO Box address in Arizona. 

Why do we mail our assessments to Arizona instead of Texas? We use a bank that specializes in homeowner association accounts. The bank processes over 100,000 payments monthly from hundreds of homeowner associations around the country. Their expertise ensures the safe transmission of your payment directly to your account. There is no charge for this electronic service. Using an electronic payment system is much more efficient than using the MCIA office to manually process over 2,300 payments. The cost savings by using this system are passed onto you.

If your mortgage company pays your assessment from your escrow account, please forward this information to them to ensure prompt payment. 

If you do not receive your bill in the mail by December 31st, we strongly urge you to contact the MCIA office to request another copy. You may call us at 713-729-2167 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your property address.

Flood Recovery Grant Opportunity
