Homeowners’ associations (HOA) and condominium associations are supposed to help keep neighborhoods
clean and beautiful. However, many HOAs have gained notoriety for overstepping
their boundaries and becoming downright oppressive. Homeowners can feel
like they are being shoehorned into designing or decorating their home
a certain way, or others may feel as if they are paying an HOA a monthly
fee for virtually no services in exchange.
When things get out of hand and an HOA goes too far, the situation can
be less of an annoyance and more of an actual abuse of power. What are
you supposed to do to stand up for yourself against an HOA that seems
to be the one controlling whether or not you are allowed to live in your
own house? Contacting an HOA attorney is a great first step.
When you should contact an HOA attorney for guidance or representation:
HOA demands you make
expensive architectural changes to your property
denies you the right to make architectural changes to your property
discriminated against by the HOA due to a protected class
Other members of the HOA community receive
HOA board will not share with you
HOA board meetings
shut out HOA members
Common area damage or defect causes you to suffer an injury, illness, or other harm
increases your fees without due cause
threatens your wellbeing or your right to residency
HOA board attempts to put a
lien on your property
You are targeted by
aggressive debt collection techniques
questions about permitted HOA activity
You need your HOA agreement
An HOA Attorney You Can Trust
The problem with many HOA attorneys is that they represent either homeowners
or homeowners’ associations. How can you trust a lawyer to do what
is in your best interest when they receive paychecks from the same HOA
you are trying to challenge?
At Skipper Law, we are aware of how some law firms can seem to try to play
both sides of the fence and the problem with trustworthiness that creates.
For that reason,
we never represent HOA or condominium associations.
We only represent homeowners like you. If you believe you may be the victim of unfair or illegal conduct, you
can trust in us to be there by your side and leveling the playing field.
