Common Types Of HOA Disputes

HOAs have become more prevalent as new residential developments are built and established neighborhoods adopt the HOA model of community management. Membership is often mandatory and requires fees to help pay for maintenance of common areas, shared structures and other services.

Disputes between residents and HOA boards occur for a number of reasons, many of which involve breaking covenants or not following the restrictions of the HOA. This may include:

  • Landscaping disputes
  • Fencing or other yard structures
  • Remodeling restrictions
  • Storage of vehicles on a property
  • HOA dues

Legal Guidance Can End A Dispute

When disputes occur, it may be necessary to consult with an attorney who can review the HOA legal documents and help resolve the matter. We have a strong track record of resolving HOA disputes using alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in order to avoid expensive litigation. However, if an agreement cannot be reached through negotiation, arbitration or mediation, Ms. Skipper is an accomplished litigator who is always prepared to represent her clients in court.

The firm also handles legal matters affecting local governments and residents in municipal disputes. Unlike in her previous work for Paulding County, however, Ms. Skipper does not serve as an appointed representative of the government. Instead, she can be hired as legal counsel for local governments or citizens involved in disputes with their local governments.
