Condo Association and Condo Owner Representation
Our lawyers have created numerous homeowners associations and condominium associations throughout Philadelphia and the surrounding counties. Our lawyers know how to represent developers in establishing programs that enabled the smooth and effective transition of operations to newly created homeowners associations. And our lawyers know how to help developers of condominium-conversion projects to effectively follow through on the rules and regulations required under the Pennsylvania Uniform Condominium Act.
Our attorneys also represent condominium associations in reviewing and revising operating declarations and bylaws to adhere to changing regulations and new circumstances.
Beyond the creation of condo conversions, our attorneys will help develop the documents necessary to sell individual units to prospective buyers and represent sellers at settlement.
Larger condominium developments are like small cities, requiring their own quasi-governmental bodies to regulate transactions and activities of occupants. Avallone Law Associates serves as general counsel to condo associations and the management committee in:
- Setting and collecting assessments for maintenance and improvement of common areas (pools, grounds, hallways, recreation centers, parking lots)
- Transition of ownership and incorporation of the association
- Advising the association board on drafting bylaws and amendments
- Proper procedures for conducting meetings and publishing minutes
- Disputes with unit owners over past-due assessments, transactions or violation of association rules and regulations
- Conflicts between condo owners and HOAs, including issues such as property lines and HOA fees
