About Kingsley Square Townhouses
Kingsley Square is a condominium / and townhouse community in Freehold Boro, Monmouth County, NJ. It’s located east of Route 9, just north of Rt 33 and The Raceway Mall.
Kingsley Square has a homeowners association, thus there’s a monthly HOA fee. The monthly fee includes common area maintenance, snow removal, garbage removal and use of the pool. However, ownership of these homes is not condo style, rather it’s called fee simple ownership. In a typical condo, the HOA is responsible for exterior maintenance of the buildings. The important thing to know about fee simple is that each homeowner owns the entire unit, even though it’s attached to other homes. As a result, exterior maintenance of the building, including the roof, is not included in the homeowners association fee.
This community makes a great starter home.
