An Ocean Ridge lawsuit has reached an amicable settlement to resolve the litigation between the Ocean Ridge Master Association and the Ocean Ridge developer, Mark Saunders. The Ocean Ridge lawsuit dealt with overpaid assessments by the developer. When the Ocean Ridge Master Association’s, which is the property owners’ association for Ocean Ridge Plantation, governance was turned over to property owner elected board members the lawsuit began to develop.

The Ocean Ridge protective covenants called for the developer to be exempt from property assessments at the time of turnover, but the exemption provision was overlooked, and companies managed by Saunders were still billed and continued paying for assessments on their home sites.

A mediation facilitated by a certified mediator took place and both parties resolved the matter.

“We have always had a cordial and productive working relationship with the association members, who are an important reason that Ocean Ridge Plantation® has thrived,” Saunders said, “and, while the lawsuit was unfortunate, it is good to get the issue resolved. We look forward to continuing to work with the association’s board of directors.”
