Handling HOA-Related Conflict
What A Lawyer Can Do
If you disagree with the rules of your HOA, it’s not necessarily easy to make changes. That’s because new HOA rules or required expenses have to be passed by the board in order to be enacted. If you have CC&Rs within the property deed itself, things can get even trickier: You would have to go to court to remove the offending items.
While taking legal action for a Georgia HOA issue isn’t always straightforward or easy, there are some situations where either individual homeowners or an HOA representative might want to enlist the services of a lawyer, including:
- Discrimination or harassment
- Contract violation
- Potential misappropriation of funds
Disputes involving your HOA can be particularly stressful because they involve your neighbors, and in more severe cases, can even have an effect on your property values. Having an experienced HOA lawyer on your side can help lessen the impact to your life if you find yourself facing such a conflict.
