ORLANDO LITIGATION ATTORNEYS REPRESENTING ASSOCIATIONS AND INDIVIDUAL HOMEOWNERS
While it is always the goal to come to a speedy and satisfactory resolution, not every homeowner or condo association dispute can be resolved without formal mediation, courtroom litigation or arbitration. As Orlando area HOA and condo association litigators, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Peter R. McGrath, P.A. work diligently for our clients to avoid protracted legal battles. However, when you represent an HOA board that is trying to obtain compliance from a defiant homeowner, or a property owner whose rights are being trampled by an autocratic homeowner or condo association, your case may wind up in mediation, court or binding arbitration—and when it does, you'll need a lawyer who is an experienced litigator. At the Orlando Law Offices of Peter R. McGrath, P.A. our litigation attorneys have been practicing for over three decades. Our focus on association law gives our clients an important advantage in any legal setting.
Attorneys Enforcing Association Rules and Covenants in FL
When it comes to homeowner association disputes in Florida, the vast majority arises from noncompliance by a property owner—usually because he or she refuses to follow the rules or has misinterpreted them. In cases like these, once your board has exhausted all other remedies (friendly reminders, stern demand letters), and the homeowner still refuses to comply, there may be no choice but to to pursue relief through mediation, arbitration or litigation. When represented by the Law Offices of Peter R. McGrath, P.A., our lawyers will evaluate your case and advise you of the strength of your legal position. We will then present you with options. If informal means of resolving the dispute, or mediation, fail to achieve the desired result, our firm is ready to litigate—both aggressively and cost-effectively—in order to enforce compliance and protect the rights and property values of owners who do follow the rules.
HOA and Condo Lawyers Who Protect Individual Property Rights
Unlike certain law firms which specialize in homeowner and condominium association law, the Law Offices of Peter R. McGrath, P.A., are also here to help individual owners facing unfair treatment at the hands of their homeowner or condominium association. HOA and condo association boards will sometimes overreach and attempt to enforce covenants or impose other obligations — such as unauthorized assessments and other charges — in a ad hoc, unfair and non-uniform manner. At other times, certain members who object to the manner in which the association is being operated, or find their voting rights being infringed at annual elections to the board, will be on the receiving end of punishing demands which are not being meted out to other owners who remain quiet. Still further, owners seeking approval from an association for a proposed improvement to their property, or seeking approval for a lease or to sell their property, will sometimes encounter unreasonable demands or outright rejection of perfectly legitimate proposed uses of their property.
We understand the strain and personal hardship of being on the receiving end of unfair treatment from a homeowner or condominium association. The Orlando Law Offices of Peter R. McGrath, P.A. represent individuals who seek justice in their dealings with homeowner and condominium associations. Our attorneys have over three decades of experience in protecting individual property rights from the sometimes unfair and arbitrary dictates of HOA and condo boards and committees. We are very familiar with the outer limits of association power, and are here to help you when your association has stepped over the line and unlawfully trampled upon your rights. When it's time to stand up for your rights as an individual property owner, we are ready to help.
