Providing Strategic Representation to Co-ops, Condos and HOAs
Co-ops, condominiums and homeowner associations (HOAs) are unique and complicated entities that run a significant risk of exposure to legal claims and lawsuits. These legal actions can be brought by many different parties, ranging from unit owners and tenants to contractors and developers. The attorneys at KDV regularly advise co-op, condominium and HOA clients in California, New York, Florida and other areas throughout the nation. Our lawyers understand the difficult challenges these entities, their members and governing boards face as they try to comply with complex state and local laws as well as their own bylaws and governing documents.
KDVs attorneys offer a depth and breadth of experience in representing co-ops and the boards of condominiums and HOAs. When conflicts and issues surface, our lawyers work one-on-one with our clients to develop viable, cost-effective solutions. Our lawyers handle a wide range of disputes involving co-op, condo and HOA boards, such as legal actions challenging the decisions of board members, actions brought by unit tenants involving repairs and other activities, and legal actions brought by contactors and unit owners. We are familiar with the specific duties and obligations these boards must meet and leverage this knowledge to help our clients resolve these issues as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
Beyond settling and litigating disputes, lawyers throughout our firm work with clients to establish co-ops, condominiums and HOAs and assist in the drafting and preparation of organizational documents, including HOA agreements and Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CCR) agreements.
