The Community Club bills at the end of a month for the next month’s charge.
Example: We billed the end of December, 2016 for the month of January, 2017. The account is current as of January 31, 2017.
If no payment is made:
- 30 days delinquent Receive a Call from Owner Services
- 60 days delinquent Receive a Call from Owner Services
- 90 days delinquent Letter 1 is mailed
- 120 days delinquent Letter 2 is mailed
- 150 days delinquent Letter 3 is mailed After Letter 3 the account goes to collections, and at this time we intend to freeze the billing so the customer’s balance does not change. This will allow the collection agency to turn the account over to the credit bureau, and report against a person’s credit.If the collection agency is unable to collect from the member the account comes back to the Club. We are exploring ways to reinstate a relationship with the member. The Club will freeze the billing for time period it is at the collection agency. The Club will have a 3rd special accounts receivable account.
