Directors serving on boards of neighborhood associations are often surprised at the number and variety of legal issues they face as a volunteer board member of a homeowners association. Covenants must be enforced against homeowners fairly. Town home and condominium owners associations must collect dues and assessments from property owners to ensure sufficient cash flow to meet the association’s obligations. Vendors must be lined up to care for lawns, landscaping, snow removal, trash removal, and exterior maintenance. Association books must be maintained and audited. Regulatory reporting laws governing nonprofits must be adhered to. Corporate formalities must be followed.
Thompson Law Office offers comprehensive legal services to homeowners associations, townhome owners associations, and condominium owner associations. We work directly with boards of directors or with property management companies retained by association boards. We provide practical advice and passionate advocacy in a variety of neighborhood association legal matters, including:
- enforcement of restrictive covenants
- collection of assessments and dues
- vendor relationships
- contract review
- amendments to bylaws
We represent associations in civil litigation. While we strive to help association boards avoid litigation, when it is inevitable we work with our client to minimize the costs and the impact of the litigation on the association.
