2016 MEMBERSHIP AGREEMENT
We are happy to announce that even though the increased operating expenses continued to rise significantly in 2015, we will continue to maintain our goal to provide a safe and comfortable environment for our guests and members without increasing our membership fees and electric rates across the board. Although a few lot rents have been increased to the minimum for the 2016 season.
undersigned hereby agrees to become a member of Northaven Resort,
Inc. ("Resort"). In consideration of such membership, I
understand that I will be afforded the right to use all resort
facilities, including the exclusive use of your lot.
membership requires your lot to be cleaned prior to opening weekend
each season. If you are unable to clean your lot prior to opening
weekend, the RESORT will clean the lot and assess a clean up fee not
to exceed $100.
membership fee for the initial membership term, which continues
through the end of the current calendar year is $_______.
If I choose to renew my membership for any additional calendar years,
it will be at the rate then established by the Resort. If I do not
renew my membership by my membership due date, or the Resort, in its
sole discretion does not agree to allow me to renew my membership, my
membership will be deemed to be terminated, and I agree to remove any
camper or other vehicle which I may have placed upon my assigned lot
on or before my membership due date. I agree to receive no value or
compensation for any fixed improvements that I have made to any lot.
By becoming a member, I agree to abide by all Resort Rules and Guidelines established from time to time by the Resort. If I violate these Rules and Guidelines, I understand that my membership may be terminated, and upon such termination, I will forfeit any unused portion of my membership fee.
I further agree that the terms and conditions of the Resort Rules and Guidelines shall survive the term of my membership, and I agree to be bound to such terms. I understand that by violating certain conditions and provisions contained in the Resort Rules, I may become liable to the Resort or other Resort members and guests who are third party beneficiaries to this agreement.

per week charge ( or $7.00 per day) will be due PAYABLE WEEKLY.
SIGNATURE BLOCK..>> ______________________________
In past years, the small $100 late charge was sufficient to stimulate members prompt and full membership dues payment. This has not been the case the last few years.
Generating cash flow early in the year when over half of the memberships are due has been the key to overcoming the amount of revenue it takes to open the first half of each season. Prompt payment of dues and electric bills allows us to maintain the standards of quality we are proud of without raising all membership dues to make up for the late payments of the few and generate the cash flow we need to pay our bills.
Effectively immediately, the one time $100 late charge will now be replaced with the following policy:
renewal fees are due upon your membership anniversary date each year
as in the past. If your dues are not received on that date, a $50.00
per week charge ( or $7.00 per day) will be due PAYABLE WEEKLY (to
help generate our needed cash flow) This per week charge will NOT
reduce your membership total dues owed or change your renewal date!
If the $50.00 per week charge goes more than two weeks unpaid, your
unit must be removed from the assigned lot OR Northaven Resort will
move your unit to a storage area on the property. You will then be
responsible for any expenses Northaven Resort incurs for the movement
of your property and daily storage charges for the unit in our
has been said that if we had credit card payment options it would be
easier to make payments. Unfortunately the addition costs for credit
card services at Northaven Resort or to hire additional help to
manage payment plans are not in our future. If you prefer to use a
credit card, go to the bank and get a cash advance for your
membership dues as it will be far more cost effective than paying
this weekly fee to remain on your lot.
