Community Association Law

Community associations are multi-faceted corporations responsible for critical community functions such as budgeting and finances, covenant enforcement, and insurance and maintenance of common property and improvements. A community association is obligated to perform its duties in the interest of its membership in accordance with the governing documents of the community association as well as applicable statutory and administrative law. To this end, it is critical that a community association be proactive rather than reactive in identifying issues of importance to the community and its members. Emmanuel, Sheppard, & Condon’s attorneys can assist in identifying critical issues which may affect the community association, and work to develop a comprehensive solution to those issues.


Emmanuel, Sheppard & Condon’s attorneys routinely provide advice and services to our community associations such as: 

  • Compliance with applicable statutory law and administrative regulations 
  • Corporate governance and operation 
  • Collection of assessments and fines 
  • Foreclosure of claims of lien 
  • Covenant violations 
  • Document drafting, amendment and revision 
  • Extension or reinstatement of covenants, conditions and restrictions due to implications of the Marketable Record Title Act (MRTA) 
  • Association management and service contracts 
  • Association mergers 
  • Termination of the condominium form of ownership
