Community associations are the fastest growing form of housing in the United States. This includes town home associations, condominium associations and cooperatives. In 2010, the Community Associations Institute (CAI) estimated that approximately 62 million Americans — one out of every six Americans — live in community associations. An estimated 24.8 million homes belong to community associations.

Does Your Community Association Have The Legal Support It Needs?

Community associations, their boards of directors and their property management companies are responsible for protecting the significant investment their members make in their homes and common areas. They enact and enforce rules related to the use of the homes and common areas, resolve disputes involving association members, maintain and repair portions of the property, budget for the future, and collect membership fees and assessments. Most of the time, community associations handle their day-to-day governance with little or no help.

But every community association occasionally needs some solid legal advice. Our community association clients rely on Smith Jadin Johnson to provide them with honest and straightforward legal analysis of the issues affecting them. We regularly advise our clients on a wide range of issues related to the operation, management and governance of community associations and related HOA disputes.

The services we provide include:

  • Drafting and amending governing documents (declarations, bylaws, and rules and regulations)
  • Legal opinions regarding interpretation of governing documents
  • Enforcement of governing documents
  • Homeowner dispute resolution
  • Collections
  • Vendor contract negotiation, drafting and review
  • General corporate legal advice

We also regularly represent community associations in mediation, arbitration and litigation against third parties. These claims range from insurance appraisals and coverage lawsuits against insurance companies, construction defect lawsuits against developers and contractors, and breach of contract lawsuits against vendors.
