Default Temp Resident IDs vs my amenity fee

So if I am a "visitor" to TV while my house is rented out, am I able to use my resident ID as normal or do I forfeit that privilege becuz the renters get temp IDs as part of my rental? If the latter, then they pay $50 to obtain, yet I continue to pay my amenity fee but can't use the amenities? Sounds like TV is double dipping if this is true.

If you get resident IDs for your renters, The Villages keeps your ID.

They get the $50 transfer fee but only your are paying the $150/mo amenity fee. I guess it's like Cable TV, WiFi, or a golf cart included with your rental. You transfer the ID to them the only way to recover your fee is to include it in your rental charge if the market will bear it.

First of all, the $50 charge is a processing fee that is paid only once even if the rental is for a year or longer. Yes, your renter assumes your privileges. If you want, you can charge rent that will cover the monthly amenities fee. If your renter receives a Temporary Resident ID you must surrender your ID card for the duration of the rental period.

Normally, it is a no harm, no foul issue. Very few homeowners are here when their renters or, if they are here, they own more than one home and would have resident IDs for both homes. So, turning in your ID cards is normally not an issue.

As to the $50, there is a bit of paperwork involved to switch over the resident IDs. I'm sure the developer makes a profit on this, but not the whole amount.

You can't use your ID because the renters are "using" it. You continue to pay the amenity fee because it's connected with your property and the renters have the right to the amenities. I'm guessing the $50 fee for the renters IDs is for processing.

I've rented my home as a long-term rental ever since I closed in May, 2012. Mom and I both had to turn in our Resident IDs as soon as we rented our home. I signed a form so my renters could get non-resident IDs that didn't require them to renew their IDs every month (I can't remember the official name of the IDs.). Their ID is a different color than the Resident IDs and are good for 2 or 3 years. (I really need to look up the color and the length of time!)

When Mom and I visit TV, we have to pay $50 for temporary Resident IDs that has the dates of our visit on it. I must admit it bugs me to get the temporary Resident IDs as we are only in TV for two weeks when we visit!

The same rule applied when my renters had temporary Resident IDs.

You cannot use your resident ID if someone is renting your house AND they have Temp Resident IDs. You are to surrender your IDs when you submit the paperwork for the ID transfer. Part of the rental price you receive is for the amenities just as the water, irrigation, trash, and sewer is part of the house rental (unless you require the renters to pay for them). If you could keep using the amenities at the same time as the renters are able to use the amenities there would not be enough "food on the buffet table".

You have to turn your pass in. You will only be able to get a visiter pass.
You forfeited it when you rented your place.
Sorry😂
