Do you represent homeowners?
Because our office represents so many HOAs in Central Florida, we will represent homeowners on a case-by-case basis dependent upon whether there is a conflict of interest.
How does the collections process work?
When a homeowner becomes delinquent, the HOA or Management Company will send the account to us for further collection efforts. Our office will prepare and send the collections letters in strict accordance with Florida and Federal collections laws to get the process started. Our team is highly trained and ready to be the primary contact for each homeowner in collections until their account is brought current.
How can an HOA enforce violations of the governing documents?
Florida Law gives HOAs a lot of authority to ensure homeowners comply with the governing documents. To remedy a violation, the HOA can send an initial demand letter or the HOA can send a notice of intent to fine. Our attorney is available and ready to discuss which option best suits your needs.
