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 Kaufman Dolowich’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 Kaufman Dolowich are experienced in resolving all types of conflicts involving condo, co-op and HOA boards, including:

  • Claims made by contractors and homeowners
  • Claims challenging board of directors decisions
  • Claims challenging board member election
  • Claims brought by tenants involving repairs

Our lawyers have an intimate knowledge of local real estate laws as well as the rules and guidelines governing co-ops and condominium associations.  We draw upon this knowledge and understanding to evaluate a claim and work with our clients to find the best path to successfully resolving the matter.  While we aim to settle these disputes amicably without lengthy litigation, our attorneys are prepared to aggressively defend our clients’ positions in court if it is in their best interest
