Homeowners Associations & Condominium Associations
Homeowners’ associations (HOAs), governed by Florida Statutes Chapters 617 and 720, and condominium associations, governed by Florida Statutes Chapter 617 and 718, are prevalent in Florida, where community living can provide amenities and conveniences to residents. The Castro Potts Law Firm represents HOAs and condominium associations with regard to drafting and enforcement of governing documents, as well as general day-to-day legal needs and advice. Furthermore, we assist homeowners when dealing with potential enforcement issues or other legal matters, such as seeking approval for improvements or modifications. Many associations benefit from a review and update of governing documents, including articles of organization, bylaws, declarations of restrictions and covenants, and rules and regulations for the community. In addition, the procedure for violation of these documents or applicable Florida Statutes is precise and must be followed appropriately by the association to ensure valid and enforceable legal action. If you are seeking assistance regarding a matter involving a homeowners’ or condominium association, please contact the Castro Potts Law Firm to speak with us about how we can assist.
Golf Clubs, Community or Civic Organizations, & Other Associations or Organizations
The Castro Potts Law Firm assists with the governance and organization of entities that operate various types of community organizations such as for-profit or non-profit golf clubs, civic or community organizations, and other various clubs or associations. Legal needs for these organizations can range from a simple review and update of governing documents and structure to an in-depth review and reorganization, possibly due to a prospective merger or acquisition opportunity or expansion of operations or organization size. In such situations, it is advisable to retain legal counsel to advise and assist in order to optimize the organization proactively and reduce the likelihood and costs of avoidable liabilities or costs down the road. In such situations, counsel will often work in conjunction with your other professional advisors, such as a tax advisor or property manager, to ensure that your needs are met in the most efficient and appropriate manner.
