Community Association Law

Community associations are multi-faceted corporations responsible for critical community functions such as budgeting and finances, covenant enforcement, and insurance and maintenance of common property and improvements. A community association is obligated to perform its duties in the interest of its membership in accordance with the governing documents of the community association as well as applicable statutory and administrative law. To this end, it is critical that a community association be proactive rather than reactive in identifying issues of importance to the community and its members. Coastal Association Law Group’s attorneys can assist in identifying critical issues which may affect the community association, and work to develop a comprehensive solution to those issues.
