Dear [Recipients Name],

Lowden Properties is finding it necessary, to maintain the standard and beauty of our common areas and exteriors, to raise the condo association fees from $412 to $434 a month, as of June 1. We did postpone the changes for as long as we could, but maintenance costs have been on the increase persistently, and the increase was eventually inevitable. We will, of course, maintain the same high standard of service and support as you have come to expect in the past. We'd like to apologize for the challenge that this places on your budget and we will continue to do all that we can to keep costs and low as possible.

Sincerely,

[Senders Name]
