- Community associations are much the same as a mini government. Associations elect directors, manage common areas, enforce rules and conduct the day to day business of running a community. We have found that at times the Board is involved in disagreements with vendors, owners, and each other. We pride ourselves on providing solutions to board members to assist them in dealing with the challenges that are presented them in their positions as volunteers.
- We recognize the importance of the association Board members avoiding personal liability. One area that is often overlooked by association Directors is the review of contracts. Often this is done in an effort to “save” the association money. Our experience proves that it is imperative that the Directors get a legal review of all contracts prior to execution. It is far more costly to rescind a “bad” contract than it is to review the contract to make sure that it is in the association’s best interest. Many of these contracts can be reviewed for a flat rate – determined in advance of the review. The fee is based on the complexity of the contract.
- We work with associations to simplify the revision of governing documents. There are provisions that are required to be changed because of legislative changes and court decisions. In addition, over the years many associations have passed multiple amendments that make it difficult to follow the governing documents. By amending and restating the governing documents the association and the members are presented with a clean set of governing documents that simplify compliance and enforcement.
- We utilize the expertise of seasoned litigators that are part of the firm and others who work with us as Of Counsel on complex litigation matters.
