Number of liens placed on Rancho Santa Fe Covenant properties down


Only nine properties in the Rancho Santa Fe Covenant will have liens placed against them after several homeowners paid their outstanding dues. In July, the Rancho Santa Fe Association suspended the privileges of 15 property owners who were delinquent on their 2010-11 assessment payments with liens scheduled to be placed on Aug. 31. Six of those owners made enough required payments by Aug. 31 to avoid liens and Association Manager Pete Smith gave credit to the Association staff for tracking down the money.

“To have only nine properties in today’s environment within some 1,900 homes, that’s commendable,” Smith said.

Last year liens were placed on 17 Covenant parcels.
