Tampa Homeowner & Condo Unit Owner Representation Lawyer
As a homeowner in a neighborhood governed by an HOA or a condominium owner, you can benefit greatly from the services the HOA or COA offers to provide security and amenities, maintain common areas and landscaping, and enforce standards to enhance community property values and quality of life. However, at times, you might also find yourself chafing under community association rules or in a dispute over assessments. Millions of Floridians are currently living in homes and condos regulated by thousands of different HOAs and COAs. Unfortunately, not every association is set up properly or run well.

When Unit Owners Need Legal Help
Seward Law Office can represent you in your dealings with your HOA or COA regarding any type of dispute, including:
- Association fails to maintain common property or make needed repairs to community facilities
- Association is engaging in arbitrary enforcement of HOA rules
- Association directors are suspected of misappropriating funds
- Board imposed a special assessment out of compliance with Florida COA laws or HOA governing documents
Help with HOA Assessments
You pay monthly dues to your association for the services they provide, and still they hit you with special assessments now and again, often to cover an unexpected expense because the association failed to maintain a sufficient reserve fund. Depending on the terms of your HOA governing documents, you might be able to challenge assessments with the board or even go to court if you think the assessment is improper. Remember, the HOA can put a lien on your parcel for delinquent assessments and even move to foreclose on your mortgage based on unpaid dues or assessments. Seward Law Office provides assistance to associations as well as unit owners regarding past due assessments, liens and foreclosure. With knowledge and experience gained from representing both sides to HOA and unit owner disputes, our team offers insightful, strategic advice and representation tailored to protect your rights and help you achieve a satisfactory result.
