A Bit About “MRTA”

In accordance with the Marketable Record Title Act, Chapter 712 of the Florida Statutes, on July 8, 2016, the board of directors approved the recording of the Statement of Marketable Title Action, which retained the status of the declaration as the source of marketable title and renewed it for another 30-year period.

What’s My Account Number?

Mailed statements indicate your account number printed on the payment coupon. The Master Assoc. account number begins with GTM followed by 5 numbers. Be certain to write your GTM account number on every Master Assoc. check, or indicate it on your e-payments from your bank’s online Bill Pay.

You can also find your account number(s) by logging into the Signature payment portal (see details at right) and clicking on Billing in the left panel.

Master Association fees payment info

Each Gator Trace owner belongs to two associations. The Master Association uses Signature Property Management for our bookkeeping and dues collection services (only).

Payments are always due by Jan. 1, Apr. 1, July 1, and Oct. 1. The Master Assoc. quarterly assessment amount for 2024 is $356 per quarter ($136/quarter for lot-only). You are responsible to make prompt payment of this fee each quarter, whether or not you receive a statement. The due dates, the amount due, and the remit address are the same all year. Be sure to pay on time to avoid late fees.
