If you are involved in a real estate construction, co-ownership, purchase/sale, lease, or HOA dispute, and would like to discuss your situation with an experienced real estate attorney, you have come to the right place. Counts Law Firm Real Estate Attorneys assist companies and individuals, including property owners, investors, general contractors, subcontractors, architects, brokers, and architects.
Conditions, Covenants, and Restrictions (“CC&Rs”) are rights and obligations that automatically apply to homeowners in newer community developments. The purpose of home owner associations are to increase property values and maintain aesthetics and conformity in home exteriors, landscaping, and common areas. The bylaws establish how the HOA board of directors and/or a professional management company will manage the HOA and collect dues.
Homeowners have rights under California law and HOA documents, including but not limited to participating in the board of directors, attending HOA meetings, and resolving your disputes through legal action outside the HOA, if necessary.
For any problem you face, our office can provide you with legal guidance on interpretation and enforcement of your community’s CC&Rs, and, where needed, assist you with procedures for seeking variances or exemptions from these rules through the HOA and/or court action. Disagreements and compliance issues with homeowners’ associations can cause a great deal of frustration, but we can offer you representation designed to help resolve the dispute as quickly and effectively as possible.
We provide common-sense advice and intelligent representation for homeowners, board members and HOAs for the following problems: disciplinary actions, access to documents, board performance, financial management, improvements, alterations, usage restrictions, disputes between owners and the homeowners’ association, and disputes between individual owners.
