Homeowners Association Defense

Van De Poel, Levy, Thomas’ attorneys represent Homeowners Associations (HOA) as well as the Directors and Officers who volunteer their time to serve in such roles. We understand that due to the broad nature of an HOA’s responsibilities — setting an annual budget, collecting dues and fees, enforcing rules and regulations, and so on — an HOA cannot always please every homeowner. 

We advise our clients so that they understand the unique areas of law presented by California’s Davis-Stirling Act, the Corporations Code, and the case law that has developed around HOA’s and common interest developments. Our clients include boards and associations for residential and commercial condominiums, planned developments, and condominium conversions   

Our HOA board attorneys specialize in handling the following types of disputes on behalf of our clients:

  • Personal injury & property damage from common area negligence
  • Breach of fiduciary duty claims 
  • Negligent Security
  • Disagreements about corporate governance 
  • Amendments to governing documents
  • Architectural disputes
  • Board elections and votes
