Experienced Representation for Homeowners Associations in Charlotte
At Garrity Traina, we take pride in being your trusted association attorney in the greater Charlotte area. With over 25 years of experience, we specialize in providing top-notch legal representation for homeowners and condominium associations, non-profit corporations, owners in disputes with associations, and management companies. Our extensive clientele and decades of advising HOA boards and directors speak for our expertise and commitment.
Collection Process: Protecting Your Association’s Interests
To ensure the smooth functioning of your association, we offer a comprehensive collection process that includes a strategic approach to managing delinquent dues or assessments. Our services encompass sending demand letters, filing liens, and, if necessary, navigating the foreclosure process. We understand the importance of adhering to proper notice protocols at each stage. At Garrity Traina, we charge a flat fee for notice letters and lien filings, making our services transparent and cost-effective. Moreover, our seasoned attorneys possess a wealth of knowledge in both completing HOA foreclosures and defending owners who have been unjustly sued.
Upholding Association Provisions: Fair and Effective Enforcement
In cases of association provision violations, a Notice and Fine procedure may be initiated. Our team ensures that owners receive proper notice of the offense and have the opportunity to present their side of the story. If the violations are upheld, the association may levy fines that continue until the violation is rectified. To enforce fines, we employ a combination of demand letters, liens, and, if necessary, foreclosure procedures. Rest assured, our team at Garrity Traina will work tirelessly to preserve the integrity of your association and promote a harmonious community.
Associations: Tailored Legal Support for Homeowners and Condominiums
A homeowners association (HOA) encompasses single-family residential homes or townhomes within a planned unit development. While owners typically own their homes and yards, the association manages the Common Area, which may include recreational facilities such as playgrounds, pools, tennis courts, and walking trails. Dues are assessed on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis, depending on the association’s bylaws. The responsibilities of owners and the HOA may vary depending on the type of homes in the development.
On the other hand, a condominium association (COA) consists of a building and land collectively owned by the individual owners. Condominiums comprise units and common elements. As Charlotte association attorneys, Garrity Traina understands the unique laws and regulations governing COAs, which differ from those that apply to HOAs. Our expertise extends to handling matters such as repairs to damaged units, insurance, amenities, and utilities, ensuring that your COA operates seamlessly and efficiently.

Governing Documents: Tailored Legal Framework for Your Association
Governing documents form the backbone of any association.

Additionally, we work closely with developers, known as Declarants, who file plats or condominium plans that define the boundaries and improvements within the area. As a nonprofit corporation, your association is governed by its members and a Board of Directors. Our team actively engages with boards to address challenging issues and facilitates membership meetings to ensure the smooth operation of your association.
