Bradenton Homeowners’ Association Dispute Lawyer
Florida has the highest number of condominiums in the country, with around 48,000 in the state, according to Community Associations Institute. Condominiums are run by Homeowners’ Associations (HOAs), as are other types of planned communities. There are certainly benefits to HOAs, such as having community space, landscaping, and building repair that all comes out of HOA dues—if your specific unit requires major repair to the exterior of the building, it will be covered with the entire community’s funds, not just your own. This added security is just one of many reasons why people choose to live in communities regulated by HOAs. However, there are of course downsides to HOAs. Mismanagement of funds, breaches of fiduciary duty, and unfair fees are just a few. When you, as an owner of a property managed by a Homeowners’ Association, have suffered damages as a result of mismanagement or any other type of damage, only an experienced Bradenton homeowners’ association dispute lawyer will be able to resolve the issue in your favor. The lawyers of Suncoast Civil Law, are familiar with all of Florida’s extensive laws covering HOAs, and will pursue maximum compensation for your losses.
The Success of Litigation Depends on a Thorough Investigation
No two HOA communities are the same. All have their own set of rules and regulations, which is why HOA disputes can be so challenging. However, HOAs in Florida are all governed by the same set of laws. In order for a successful outcome in your case, your attorney must conduct an investigation into the matter, and thoroughly review the HOA documents in detail. Only then will your lawyer have a full understanding of your options, and what recourse you should take. Our lawyers provide this attention to detail, which is why our success rate is so high, and why the majority of our clients walk away from the dispute on the winning side.
