Membership Overview

Lake Mission Viejo Association is a Homeowners Association and therefore its Homeowners are subject to the CC&R's that govern the homes that are within the LMVA boundaries.  For an explanation for what an HOA is please see the below description of "What is an HOA".  

Lake Membership

A question that the Membership office is asked often is “Is Membership Optional or Can I cancel my membership?"  The answer to that question is no, Membership to the Lake Mission Viejo is PERMANENT for any home that is a member.  As with any typical property owner association, the Lake Association membership is a permanent aspect of ownership of the lot or condominium. If you sell the lot or condominium, the new owner will automatically be a member of the Lake Association. This assures that the Lake Association will not get smaller; it can only grow larger, providing a large membership base to share the costs of operating the Lake in future years. 
 
Membership is also Non-Transferable.  Membership is permanently associated with a lot or condominium.  However, membership privileges may be temporarily transferred to a bonafide tenant of a member, but the obligation to pay assessments remains with the legal owner.  Please click here for more information about Tenant Transfer.

Lake ID Cards

Your Lake membership ID badge is your access to visit the Lake. It doesn’t matter if it is your first visit in a long time or if yours is a familiar face at the front gates – your LMVA membership picture ID badge is required to gain entrance.  Not only does this special badge allow you access into the facilities and boat rentals, it also serves as your free ticket to seven great concert events each season.

 Please remember that all concert lottery attendees must present a valid membership badge in order to take part in the concert seating lottery. LMVA’s ID badge references both the property as well as the individual through a barcode system and is issued to all members eight years- old and up. All members are required to show their membership ID badges when entering the facilities. If you arrive at the Gate without it, you will be turned away.  

A member who has lost or misplaced his/her ID badge but has other identification proving residency can purchase a temporary pass for $10 at the Gate. This pass is good for ten days and can be exchanged for a new ID badge (if you cannot locate your original badge) at the Membership Office.  If you bring your original badge and your Temporary Pass to the Membership Office within ten days, you can obtain a refund of the price of the temporary pass.  Most members have been very cooperative, as we have encouraged staff to be diligent in checking membership identification at the gates. Make sure you always have your membership ID badge readily available when approaching the friendly staff at the LMVA Gates or within the park facilities.

The Board of Directors and Management would like to thank members for their efforts in helping make LMV a safe and secure environment.

What is an HOA?

A Homeowner’s Association (HOA) is the governing body of a development, usually comprising of homeowners who have volunteered to serve on the HOA board.  Members have a voice and a vote in the defined community. 
 
When a new homeowner buys a property governed by a homeowners association, they automatically become a member of the association.  New homeowners do not have the choice of not joining.  The purchase of the home becomes a contract with the HOA.  By purchasing that home, the homeowner agrees that they will obey all the rules and pay regular dues and any special assessments.
 
HOA rules are called covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&R’s).  Legally speaking, HOAs are corporations, that is, legal entities that can enforce contracts with their homeowners.  Homeowners in CC&R controlled developments usually pay association fees or dues as part of their membership.  HOAs primarily use the dues money for maintenance of common areas used by all the homeowners.
