When you move into a condo complex or other location that has a homeowners’ association, you probably have to agree to certain things up front. By moving into the home, you are usually acknowledging that you have read, understand and agree with the rules governing the HOA.
So, what happens when you face a disagreement with your HOA or your neighbors? You agreed to abide within the HOA rules, right? Does that mean you are out of luck if you think the HOA board or other members are being unreasonable or unfair?
In reality, agreement with the HOA contract does not mean you have no rights in the future. In fact, sometimes, the HOA agreement will actually protect your rights and interests. But you have to know how to present a proper case. That’s where our firm can step in to help.
We specialize in construction law of all types, and that includes real estate law. We understand how those laws work and what limitations there are on homeowners’ associations. We also know how to understand the complex details of contracts, so we can help you understand exactly what you agreed to and whether an HOA is overstepping bounds.
In cases where HOAs are not living up to their own agreements or where homeowners might have other legal grievances, we can help with filings, negotiations and discussions and even court actions if those are warranted. Some common areas we can help with include disputes over the common areas within an HOA property, issues related to how a homeowner is allowed to use his or her property and battles over financial matters related to an HOA agreement.
