Community Associations

Community Associations

Homeowner and condominium associations provide numerous benefits to municipalities, communities and property owners. The spread of property owner associations throughout the country, particularly in Texas, has given rise to many unique disputes and legal issues. Our attorneys have a wealth of experience resolving these disputes and advising property owner associations on these legal issues.

Our work begins with the formation of associations. We work with property developers in setting up the legal framework for associations. Once that foundation is in place, we assist the developer during the transition of responsibilities to the association’s board of directors.

We provide a wide range of indispensable services to address the needs of our property owner association and management company clients.

Prepare documents necessary to form and govern the association.

Advise association directors on governance issues.

Assist the association’s board of directors in enforcing bylaws and covenants.

Monitor association votes and elections.

Attend association meetings to provide explanations of the association’s rights and responsibilities, to help maintain rules of order, and to address issues of concern to members and directors.

Assist association boards in interpreting governing documents.

Draft proposed revisions to association governing documents to clarify issues of governance and owner responsibilities.

Work with the association’s board and management companies in dealing with property owners and contractors.

Assist the association’s boards and management companies in collecting association dues.

The ability to work with individual owners, association boards, management companies and association vendors is critical to effectively resolving the range of disputes that arise. Our attorneys recognize that conflict resolution is crucial to allowing a property owner association to function as it is intended. Moreover, we respond quickly to address disputes before they fester into larger problems.
