Homeowners’ Associations

 

      Real Estate Claims and LitigationToussaint & Coaty provides a full range of services related to homeowners’ associations (HOA’s) and the Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act (CIOA). Whether you are a developer creating covenants that include a homeowners’ association, a volunteer board member dealing with the complex series of laws that apply to Common Interest Communities, or a homeowner trying to establish rights in relation to the homeowners’ association, experienced attorneys at Toussaint & Coaty can help.

Services routinely provided include:

  • Assistance to real estate developers, homeowners or an HOA in interpreting, establishing or amending the Covenants and the rules and regulations that apply to properties in a Common Interest Community;
  • Collection of delinquent assessments, including recording the HOA’s lien on the property, and foreclosing the lien when necessary;
  • Covenants Enforcement, including enforcement letters and litigation when necessary;
  • Ensuring that the community’s Covenants, Bylaws and other rules and regulations comply with CIOA;
  • Advice and assistance related to board of directors elections and other governance matters;
  • Arranging for mediation between the HOA and homeowners; and
  • Advice and assistance related to providing an impartial decision maker for disputes between the HOA and homeowners.

      Often, the officers and directors of an HOA are community volunteers. They may serve for a few years, and then move on. Toussaint & Coaty can provide your community with background and continuity so that important enforcement and governance requirements are not missed. In many cases, CIOA authorizes the prevailing party, either homeowner or HOA, to collect attorney’s fees and costs when litigation has been necessary.
