Insurance Reserve Fund Fee Due at Real Estate Closing: Coakley Bay maintains an Insurance Reserve Fund to cover deductibles and co-payments arising from repairs and replacements due to damage from hurricanes and other hazards.  This reserve has been built up over many years from HOA fees and other revenue streams, with some owners contributing to this fund for over 40 years.   New owners receive the complete benefit of this cash reserve fund without having made any contributions.  Accordingly, for units closing at Coakley Bay after 12/31/2023, the new owners shall pay a fee of $2,500, assessed at the real estate closing, to provide their contribution into the fund. Closing documents / COA Form will not be complete without this contribution.
