Q. What are the lots like?
A. Lots at Holiday Camplands are a minimum of 35' x 80'. All have
water and electricity. Some are sewered. Most of our lots are wooded and
all are within a short walk of one of our 27 Comfort Stations. Lots may
be improved as the owner wishes within certain building restrictions established
by the Association and Ashtabula County.
Q. How about lot maintenance
A. With the advantages of ownership also goes the responsibility
of lot maintenance. Property owners are entirely responsible for lot improvement
and maintenance. Items such as sheds, decks and awnings are permitted
within Association guidelines. A permit is required prior to all lot improvement.
Q. What fees are involved?
A. In most cases new lot owners buy directly from current owners
who put the property on the market due to life changes. Our non-commissioned
salespersons put buyers in contact with sellers, help negotiate a price,
and assist with the necessary paperwork. All lots and trailers (if any)
are sold "as-is" with no warranty extended. In addition to the
cost of the lot, a one time initiation fee is paid to the Association
at the time of purchase. An annual per-lot maintenance fee, as set by
Council, is required of all lot owners. Real Estate Taxes are paid directly
to the County Treasurer. Electrical costs are billed on a monthly basis
and paid directly to the power company.
Q. Will my property be secure?
A. We have 24-hour gate security, 365 days a year and an evening
patrol. Additionally our "Volunteer Safety Forces" provide fire
protection and First Aid. The Ashtabula County Sheriff's Department investigates
violations of state or federal law when needed.
Q. Do you allow pets?
A. Domestic household pets are permitted provided they are kept
under control and on a leash when not on your lot.
