Disputes With Your Homeowners Association & Property Management Company
Condominium ownership often involves special issues relating to the handling of construction defects. Your Homeowners Association and Property Management Company may not always have your best interest in mind and can act in a manner that does not meet the requisite standard of care. For instance, if you have been the victim of a special assessment and your Homeowners Association or Property Management Company fail to explore whether other parties may be responsible, they may be considered liable for expended repair costs. This oversight may make them liable for any costs of repair under the law. Fortunately, Homeowners Associations and Property Management Companies have insurance policies that can cover these hidden failures.

It’s all about results - we are confident that our track record of over 100 successful cases speaks for itself. Construction defects and Homeowners Associations/Property Management Company related issues require knowledge, experience and an active understanding of the current state of law.
