Quality Representation for Homeowners Associations
At Spooner & Associates, P.C., we excel at assisting homeowner’s associations (HOA) in dealing with various legal problems with both homeowners and vendors. We provide comprehensive representation, handling collections in-house and taking the case to court if necessary. Our attorneys are skilled litigators who can aggressively advocate for your association in and out of court.
Legal issues that our clients face include:
Unpaid Assessments and Past Due Collections
Usually homeowner’s assessments occur quarterly. Our law firm works with the HOA to send out letters notifying individual home owners about the outstanding assessments, and if the outstanding assessments remain unpaid, we will help our clients file liens or lawsuits. In some situations, the home owners are willing to work with the HOA and are in need of a payment plan. Our attorneys work with homeowner’s associations to establish legally enforceable payment plans for the homeowners. This process assists the HOA by lessening costs of representing the HOA in court, as the homeowners have admitted the validity and amount of the debt. We strive to accomplish the goals of our clients in the manner in which they prefer. As such, we handle each file on a case by case basis and are sensitive to how forceful the client wants to be in collecting the debt.
Covenant violations are typically handled by the Property Management companies. In certain situations our lawyers have helped our clients with collection of the fines charges or enforcement of the violations. We also handle covenant review and revisions whenever necessary.
Major Repairs and Renovations / Vendor Contracts
While vendor contracts and relationships are typically managed by the property management company, our lawyers will review your vendor contracts to ensure that you are adequately and legally protected. We also represent associations in issues regarding code violations.
