Chicagoland Condominium and Homeowner Association Attorney

Representation for Those Experiencing Condo and HOA Legal Issues


Homeowner's associations, as well as condominium associations, are legal entities that are governed by the residents. Collective decisions are made by the property owners regarding any issues affecting the property. Homeowner's associations most closely resemble local governments with board members and meetings which establish the policy on such things as covenants, conditions, restrictions, fees and maintenance of common property. When conflicts arise between condo associations or homeowner's associations and members, policies must be enforced. Some associations enforce each and every rule with zeal; others run in a more relaxed manner.

Either way, most associations do their best to make decisions that will ultimately enhance the value of the homes. This means that in most cases, the homeowner and the homeowner’s association have the same goals. Nonetheless, problems do arise. Most homeowner’s associations and condominium associations require members to pay regular fees related to maintenance of the common property areas. If the development happens to have a recreational facility such as a pool or golf course, those fees are likely to be much higher. Some homeowner’s associations allow boards to raise these regular fees as much as 20 percent in a single year with no membership vote.
