Providing Sound Advice And Skilled Representation For Planned Community And Association Issues

All condominium developments and many single-family residential communities today are planned and developed with covenants in place to establish standards, restrictions and rules applicable to the entire community to maintain and enhance property values. Homeowners Associations (HOAs) and Condominium Owners Associations (COAs), typically organized as nonprofit corporations, are charged with the primary responsibility to enforce covenants and generally oversee these planned residential communities.
