Homeowner Legal Representation

If you're a homeowner or unit owner in Florida and you're having a dispute with your community association, you might be wondering if you need to hire an attorney. The answer is: it depends on the situation. In some cases, legal representation might be necessary to protect your rights and interests.

Community associations in Florida are governed by a complex set of laws and regulations (Chapter 718 and Chapter 720 of the Florida Statutes), so disputes between homeowners and associations can quickly become complicated. If you decide to pursue legal action against your Florida community association, make sure you hire attorneys that focus their practice in the area of community association law.

These attorneys know the ins and outs of the legal issues that commonly arise in community association disputes, like disputes over assessments or covenant violations. If you hire an attorney, they'll review the relevant governing documents and Florida statutes to determine your rights and obligations. They'll also likely review any communications or correspondence between you and the association, as well as any other evidence that may be relevant to the dispute.

If the dispute can't be resolved through alternative dispute resolution or informal negotiation, a lawsuit may be filed on your behalf seeking relief, such as an injunction to prevent the community association from taking certain actions, or damages for any harm you may have suffered.

Keep in mind that community associations in Florida are required to follow certain procedures before they can take legal action against you. They may need to provide written notice of any alleged violations of the association's governing documents and give you an opportunity to cure the alleged violation before taking legal action.
