Maintenance Fee Payments
 

For your convenience, Society Hill at Piscataway offers its homeowners the option of paying their maintenance fees on-line with either a credit card or with an electronic debit from their bank account ("electronic check"). There is no charge to the homeowner for this service. Payments are made through the secure portion of this WEB site. No credit card information is stored on the WEB server.

You can check the status of your maintenance fee account and see all the recent transactions using the new on-line maintenance fee account system (resident login required). Credit-card and direct-debit transactions will appear immediately on your account. Paper checks are usually processed and posted to the homeowner accounts on Friday of every week.

The Association also offers recurring direct-debit. To sign up, either bring your checkbook (we need your ABA routing number and account number) to the clubhouse office during reasonable business hours, or download and complete the direct-debit authorization form and follow the instructions at the bottom of the form. Recurring direct-debit transactions will be automatically posted to your account, typically in the early morning of the day of the month you select.

Credit Card Payment

Maintenance fees will be charged to your account on the first of every month. Payment is due by the 15th of the month. As of January 2017, the monthly fee for regular units is still $171, and for expired affordable units it is also $171. The maintenance fees for extending affordable units has yet to be determined. A $10 late fee will be applied to your account if a full monthly payment is not made by the 15th of the month.

The mailing address for maintenance fee payments is: Society Hill at Piscataway CA, Inc., 550 Chesterfield Drive, Piscataway, NJ 08854. You can also drop your payment off directly at the site office, either in person or there is a mailbox outside the front door.

Beginning in January, 2013, we are distributing payment coupons in the newsletter. If you misplaced your newsletter or did not receive a copy for some reason, you can download a sheet of coupons for regular units or for affordable units and cut along the dotted lines. Please be sure to write your unit number on the coupon and somewhere on your check.
