Our practice has given us a breadth of experience so that we can deal with both standard day-to-day matters (such as collection of 100 cents on the dollar for common expense arrears) and a variety of unique situations. Our condominium law lawyers can also provide corporate advice on contractual arrangements, including those with your property management company and other service providers such as landscaping companies, cleaning companies, and waste removal companies.

Hand in hand with this activity has been a renewed dialogue between Owners and Boards regarding just what exactly is covered by the condominium corporation and what Owners need to take care of themselves.
