Drafting Documents

During the formation of an HOA, there are a multitude of lengthy legal documents that must be drafted in compliance with state law and will act as guidelines for the future management of the community.  These include, but are not limited to, articles of corporation, bylaws, covenants, conditions, and restrictions (otherwise known as CC&R’s).  Because these documents are legally binding and set detailed regulations regarding both the community and the association itself, it is imperative that they be drafted by a professional homeowners’ association attorney.

The Ongoing Interest of the Homeowners’ Association

Even after the initial drafting of the HOA documents, circumstances may arise when the homeowners’ association will need the expert legal advice of an attorney.  Disputes with homeowners, collecting of delinquent fees, and allegations of illegal activity or discrimination are examples of situations in which consulting with an attorney may be helpful, if not necessary, for the homeowners’ association.

The Ongoing Interest of the Homeowner

Although it is rare, occasionally an HOA may fail to act in the best interest of the homeowner.  In these situations, it can become necessary for the homeowner to obtain an attorney in order to protect their interests.  In some circumstances, a group of homeowners will collectively seek the advice of a home owners’ attorney in order to address a common problem facing members of the community.
