What Can HOA Attorneys Do For Your Board?

Community associations are different from other organizations. Attorneys who understand the unique legal issues of HOA and condominium law can use easy-to-understand terms to help you decipher the documents and review the steps ahead.

 

In addition to the idea of being a good neighbor, there is the intersection of general corporate law, nonprofit corporate law, federal, state and municipal laws, zoning law, real estate law and covenants that must be managed.

 

We believe that it is not enough to understand legal requirements. Often, there can be unintended consequences after a board or committee makes a decision, even if it was “legally correct”. With our experience, our HOA attorneys provide practical advice and counsel after giving considering a wide range of issues that might come into play with a particular problem.
