Community Association Law

Robert Frost famously wrote that “good fences make good neighbors.” If there’s a quality fence dividing one yard from the next, it may be reasonable to conclude that good neighbors occupy the homes on each side. Perhaps the fence is maintained as a matter of courtesy. Then again, if there’s a quality fence but the neighbors aren’t keen on one another, perhaps that pristine divider is more the result of a solid community association, either a homeowners’ or a condominium association, that effectively enforces proper “fence etiquette” than it is a reflection of neighborly good will. If you manage a community association or participate on a community association board, you know what a headache squabbling neighbors can be.

There’s good news! W+L now offers services targeted to homeowners’ associations and condominium associations, helping them find real, lasting solutions to problems with rogue residents. You know the issues … fallout from natural disasters (sometimes literally — landslides, anyone?), collecting delinquent assessments, the proper application and interpretation of the governing documents that bind your community (someone always wants a fence where they can’t have one), and more. If you are a community association manager or you are a member of your association’s board of directors, consider bringing in W+L to represent your association.
