Storrings Law, a Coral Springs-based law firm, understands and appreciates the hard work of Home Owners Associations and Condominium Associations. The people that serve on HOA and Condo boards do so voluntarily, generally without pay, because they want to give back to their community. It is usually a loveless task, but nevertheless, a very important task. At Storrings Law, our goal is to help HOA and condo associations minimize potential problems. We help HOAs and condo associations with all aspects of legal representation, from preparing declarations, bylaws and articles of incorporation, to drafting contracts with vendors, to preserving and reinstating documents under the marketable record title act, and when necessary, representing HOAs and condo associations in litigation. Below are a few examples of how Storrings Law, a Coral Springs-based law firm, may be able to help you or your HOA or condo association.
Enforcing Governing Documents
Storrings law, a Coral-Springs-based law firm, assists HOAs and condo associations in connection with the enforcement of their governing documents. Usually, the biggest issue involves owners that have failed to pay association fees/dues. These fees are necessary for the general upkeep of community properties, including landscaping. They also pay for the general maintenance of common areas such as tennis and basketball courts, playgrounds, nature trails, community pools and spas, and other recreational facilities. When these fees are not paid by certain association members, all members suffer. Storrings Law specializes in handling these types of issues. We take an aggressive, yet polite and respectful approach to collecting on delinquent fees. This is because we understand that association dues need to be paid, but we also understand that every single member of your community deserves to be treated with respect.
Preserving and Reinstating Governing Documents
Storrings Law, a Coral Springs-based law firm, also assists HOAs and condo associations with preserving and reinstating their governing documents. Why is this necessary? Because an association’s governing documents can, and often times already have, expired under the marketable record title act. At Storrings Law, we take a proactive approach with each client to identify whether the client’s governing documents will expire under the marketable record title act, and if so, when. We then take steps to ensure that the documents are timely preserved, so that expiration does not occur. Moreover, for those clients whose governing documents have already expired, Storrings Law assists them in reinstating their governing documents promptly, to ensure minimal disruption to the association’s business.
