Homeowner & Condo Associations
Condo and homeowner associations are legal governing bodies with the authority to dictate policies, levy fines, and enforce rules within a designated community. In order to own property in a community governed by an HOA or other community association, one must first agree to abide by the rules set by the association. When the rules or policies of the community association are violated, legal action is often a necessity.
Homeowner and condominium associations are required to handle tasks like the collection of delinquent fees and assessments and the eviction of problematic tenants. HOAs are also involved in issues like liens and foreclosures. Dealing with these tasks in a lawful manner is important, and having a real estate lawyer on your side will ensure that every action taken by the community association is performed the right way. From advice when drafting community documents and notices to counsel when enforcing them, your attorney is there to help prevent disputes before they arise in addition to helping the process go smoothly when they do.
