Residents in a northwest Miami community are upset after finding out their homeowners association wants to raise prices.

A group of about 75 residents who live at the Sunset Villas III Condo gathered Wednesday night hoping to voice their concerns to the HOA. Some of the neighbors boycotted an informational meeting because it was held virtually.

Residents said the fees would increase to a couple of hundred dollars a month — most residents, who are on a fixed income like social security, can't afford an increase every year.

Neighbors also felt they weren't getting a fair say. A vote scheduled for last week was delayed after a similar protest.

The Zoom meeting Wednesday night was intended to be informational before a rescheduled vote.

"The new maintenance payments or budgets for the 2023 year are really hard to deal with for owners," said Julio Robaina, a former state representative who also co-owns the property management company for Sunset Villas.

Residents of a northwest Miami condo wanted their voices heard over a proposed HOA fee increase.

"It is mandatory. It's not even necessary, it's mandatory by law."

The HOA said it has to be done, and it's in its 40-year recertification.
