We are here for you when your management company or HOA is not.

If you have a major dispute and believe your management company or HOA is out of line, you can take legal action.

For example, the management company may charge you frivolous fees or retain your deposit before giving you a chance to dispute it, or a HOA might be asking that you take some action (or refrain from some action) that isn't officially covered in the CC&Rs. Or it might be unfairly favoring some homeowners over others. Maybe even imposing frivolous fines that are not allowed by law.

Because property management companies and HOAs are legal entities, you can file a lawsuit against them and ask a court to get involved. A judge can order them to obey their own rules and state or federal laws. A court can even decide that a certain rule is unfair or unconstitutional and order it to be stricken or removed from the HOA governing documents, with assistance from an experienced law firm.

Tips on what to do if you have incurred a frivolous fine:

If we take you case, our legal fees for services will be recovered from the offending property association.

The 11th Circuit has recently held that property management companies are liable under the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act, as well as the Fair Debt Practices Act.
