Condominium Associations and unit owners may inevitably have disputes, due to the fact that two parties are responsible for maintaining different parts of the same building.

Bylaws and Condominium Declarations are also often a source of dispute or contention.

Homeowner Associations & Condominium Associations
When owners fail to pay their dues it is common practice to place a lien on the homeowner’s property, as per the association’s bylaws. This process is very technical and should be filed by the association’s attorney. Other disputes can arise when certain owners fail to abide by other non-financial bylaws of the association, such as disrepair or neglecting their property, becoming a burden on all of the other association members. We have all seen the ugly house on the block, which decreases the value of the neighboring homes. Given the complexity of enforcing the association bylaws, it is imperative to have a real estate attorney oversee these disputes. In addition, attorney’s fees and court costs can be recovered when incurred to breach of deed restrictions or non-payment of dues or assessments.
