Homeowner’s Association Attorney

Helping Homeowner’s Associations with a variety of legal matters

Homeowner’s Associations (HOAs) exist to help protect the rights of homeowners in a particular community. However, HOAs often run into many different legal issues that must be handled in a proper and efficient manner. HOA law is very specific and can be complicated, so it is always important that an HOA in the state of Washington have the assistance and advice of a skilled attorney who is familiar with applicable state laws.1

If you are a representative of a Homeowner’s Association or are a homeowner-member of the association and have a legal issue, you should call an experienced Homeowner’s Association attorney at the Dickson Frohlich at (206) 621-1110 or (253) 572-1000 as soon as possible.

Ways a Real Estate Lawyer can help you

An attorney can assist homeowners and their associations in numerous ways. Some of the issues with which a lawyer can help include the following:

  • Drafting legal documents – HOAs require numerous documents including bylaws, conditions, covenants,2 and restrictions. In order to make sure these documents are legally binding and enforceable, you should always enlist the help of an attorney to draft and negotiate them.
  • Collection of assessments and fees – On certain occasions, an HOA may have a homeowner that refuses to pay their required assessments and fees. Though no HOA wants to resort to legal threats, an attorney has methods of collection, including court judgments and liens if necessary.
  • Representing homeowners – At times, an HOA will not act in the best interests of homeowners, such as paying overly inflated fees to attorneys or other employees. In such cases, the homeowners may want to take legal action against the HOA. Additionally, a homeowner may need to take legal action if construction defects or other issues are discovered at a later date.
