Covenant Enforcement, Election Disputes & Board Recalls

W hat makes community living different? This unique environment is administered by its own set of rules. Your aim is to leverage these rules to preserve property values for the safety and harmony of all. And sometimes, achieving your goal requires aggressive enforcement of those regulations, assisted by your legal team.

We focus on the nuances of condominium and homeowner association law. Whether you are required to pursue arbitration, pre-suit mediation, or litigation in your local jurisdiction, we have decades of combined experience in both forums. Our guidance ensures that your board will follow proper procedures, thereby significantly decreasing your community’s exposure to liability.

Covenant Enforcement

Our team is vigilant about staying up-to-date on the enforcement rights available under your community’s documents and Florida law, so we can effectively obtain compliance for a myriad of issues, including:

  • Compliance with Architectural Guidelines
  • Unapproved Tenants and Lease Violations
  • Removal of Non-approved Structures or Items
  • Owner Maintenance of Property and Units
  • Injunctive Relief against Nuisance Behavior and Activities
  • Pet Rule Enforcement
  • Enforcement of Suspended Common Area Amenities Use Rights

Annual Elections & Board Recalls

Annual elections and board recalls are fundamental when it comes to community living. So if a community election becomes heavily debated and contested, or a group of concerned members seek to have an individual board member or the entire board removed, it is critical to lean on the legal clarity and confidence the GADC team provides. This will diffuse these divisive and stressful issues and help you to navigate the confusing landscape of strict rules, timeframes, procedures, and complex, community dynamics. Call on us to:

  • Identify and provide all legally required forms
  • Provide assistance in ballot analysis
  • Review the validity of the election process
  • Provide comparative analysis to similar cases decided by the Division of Florida Condominiums, Timeshares, and Mobile Homes (the State of Florida agency that helps govern community associations)
  • Explain board recall certification procedures
  • Address community concerns

There are times your board will want to go it alone. Enforcing covenants, annual elections and board recalls are not on that list.
