We have received many questions regarding this including what happens to owners who don't pay for the land before the expiration date.  After doing some research we found some information on the Keystone, formerly Progressive Community Managment website that has a 12 page information booklet answers many

The Monarch Bay Terrace community is a great place to find ocean view homes in the Dana Point area.  This is a great area filled with a combination of older and newer homes that overlook the ocean.  The large majority of homes in this area were built in the early 1970's and are often single level homes.  Not all homes in this area have ocean views as the lower the priced homes often have small city light or canyon views.  Price point for non-view properties currently starts at just under $1.4 million with ocean view homes starting at around $1.6 million.
