Condominium and homeowners’ associations (HOAs) are complex entities that are required to meet specific duties and obligations pursuant to state and local laws and their own bylaws and other governing documents. Both HOAs and their boards of directors can be subject to legal claims and lawsuits from a number of different parties, including unit owners, unit tenants and contractors. When these types of cases surface, HOAs and their board members benefit from representation by an experienced team of lawyers who fully understand homeowner and condominium association law.
The members of KDV’s Professional Liability/Errors and Omissions Practice have decades of collective experience advising and representing HOAs, condominium associations and co-ops in New York, Florida and other locations throughout the country. We are a team of skilled professional liability attorneys focused on helping our clients avoid problems and resolve disputes so their condo and homeowner communities can run properly and smoothly.
When conflicts surface, HOA boards and condo associations can face legal actions brought by disgruntled homeowners and other parties. The attorneys at KDV are experienced in resolving all types of conflicts involving condo, co-op and HOA boards, including:
- Claims made by contractors and homeowners
