Disputes Involving Condominium and Homeowners Associations
Homeowners Associations and Condominium Associations frequently have disputes with their respective owners. It’s important to note that Homeowners and Condominium associations have the right to place liens on your property to make sure any outstanding debts are paid.
Some HOAs and COAs have complex and often overlapping rules to understand. If you have a dispute with your respective association, seeking legal assistance to better understand your legal rights is the best option. If you find yourself in a situation in which the HOA or COA has requested payment of dues or files notices of non-compliance, having an attorney at your side ensures your rights are protected.
Certain unheeded disputes may result in foreclosure, therefore it’s vitally important that the owner contact and engage legal counsel immediately.
