When are monthly assessments due and what are my payment options?

Monthly assessments are due the first of each month. There are several options to pay monthly assessments:

Mail

Owners may make payment by check or money order mailed to the Association’s lockbox service at:

Brambleton Community Association
C/O FirstService Residential
P.O. Box 62010, Newark, NJ 07101

Important considerations: Checks must be made payable to “Brambleton Community Association”. Payments must reference the account number or include the payment coupon to ensure the payment is properly recorded.

Online Bill Pay

Owners may pay assessments using an online bill paying service from their personal banking institution. When establishing the service with the personal bank, use the lockbox address above as the payee address and reference your account number to ensure the payment is properly recorded.

Important considerations: There is a processing time of three business days for electronic payments. Financial institutions that do not work with partnered clearinghouses mail payment as a manual check and processing time may take longer than three business days.

Direct Debit

With this program, the owner authorizes FirstService Residential to withdraw the monthly recurring assessment amount from a designated checking or savings account. Owners can sign up for Direct Debit service online using the following link: www.clickpay.com/firstservice. Please note that management of the Direct-Debit program has transitioned to ClickPay effective March 20, 2017.

This change will not disrupt payments set up through our original Direct-Debit program, and no action will be required. Payments through the Direct-Debit program will continue to withdraw automatically and will be listed on owner bank statements as the community or association name. If you wish to manage or edit your payments made through the Direct-Debit program, please contact ClickPay with the owner account number found on your statement or coupon.

If corrections in the debit amount are necessary, it may involve an adjustment (credit or debit). These transactions will occur during the first week of each month the Assessment is due. There is a service charge per payment returned, for any reason. If two payments are returned within one year, the service will be stopped and owners will be responsible for making payments on balances due.

Cancellations are not automatically processed when a property is sold or transferred. Automatic Debit authorizations remain in effect until written notice of cancellation is processed by FirstService Residential.

ClickPay

This third-party payment service offers owners the ability to make one-time or recurring e-check or credit card payments from this link: www.ClickPay.com/FirstService. For help with your account or setting up payments online, please contact ClickPay at www.ClickPay.com/GetHelp, or call 1.888.354.0135 (option 1).

Important considerations: Account information is privately held between ClickPay and the property owner. Processing fees apply for all credit card payments, as well as for one-time e-checks. Recurring e-checks are processed at no charge. ClickPay payments typically take three business days to process. Expedited payment (one business day) can be requested for an additional charge.

Payment amounts are established by the owner and will NOT automatically adjust each year to the appropriate assessment amount; owners must access their account to adjust payment amounts.

***Assessment payments are NOT accepted at the Brambleton Community Association management office due to the fact they are processed as of the date of receipt at the bank or in the Accounting Department. Please note that cash cannot be accepted at the Brambleton Community Association management office or at FirstService Residential offices for payment of assessments.
