Condominiums offer a long list of benefits to those who decide to reside in them. Condominium unit owners have the advantage of owning property without the hassle of property maintenance, repairs, and security concerns. Condos are very popular in cities for their practical purposes, their expansive views and many times they can be more affordable than single-family homes in the same location. It is no wonder why there are many high-rise residential structures being constructed or about to open in prime South Florida locations.
However, there can be a downside to the condominium-housing boom. With more people living in close confines with each other, they are bound to display a code of respect and conduct with those they share space with. In a condominium community, there is always a possibility of having a problem or a dispute that may not be able to be resolved quickly and easily. In that event, it is important to know your rights and options and our attorneys have the substantive experience to guide you through it.
Homeowner’s Associations (HOA), condominiums and townhomes are often governed by an elected Board. This Board is usually elected by the unit/home owners on an annual basis and they make decisions regarding the daily operations of the association including rules establishment and rules enforcement. While Florida’s Statutes govern, each association can set its own rules based on the state rules.
Without doubt, disputes and litigation are common with Florida HOA’s and condo associations. HOA disputes and litigation can be with association members, vendors, builders, developers, contractors, insurers, municipalities, etc.Legal Representation For Condo Disputes
