Real Estate Litigation
Real estate law pertains to the possession, ownership, usage, and enjoyment of land and the structures it contains for homeowners, buyers, sellers, landlords, and tenants. The bulk of any real estate law practice is handling disputes, usually related to ownership or acquisition of real property, and litigation involving financing issues, zoning, appraisal, closings, and local ordinance compliance. Resolving real estate cases is often a lengthy process, but working with a skilled attorney ensures a smoother and faster process.

In American residential communities, HOAs, condominium associations, or private governing bodies are common. There are many of these associations in neighborhoods and communities throughout Worcester County. Residents own their individual properties but share joint interest in common areas, such as golf courses, swimming pools, or social clubs. The HOA members elect a governing body to oversee and enforce community rules and regulations.
Successfully operating an HOA or related entity is built on developing a solid foundation, and beginning with a skilled legal team is vital to that success. A knowledgeable HOA attorney provides:
- Assistance and guidance on developing, amending, or interpreting governing body documents, such as association rules and bylaws.
- Budget preparation assistance and management of financial responsibilities.
- Guidance regarding community meetings, including voting, proxies, procedures, minutes, and confidentiality concerns.
- Debt and delinquency collection through lawsuits, liens, and foreclosures, and enforcing association rights in bankruptcy proceedings.
- Enforce association bylaws, rules, and covenants, including legal hearings and court proceedings regarding violations.
- Review, negotiate, and enforce vendor contracts, including security, insurance, property management, waste management, landscaping, and golf course or swimming pool maintenance and management.
- HOA board members, homeowners, employees and staff, or neighboring residences or communities with dispute resolutions.
