COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION LAW

 

Community Associations are unique developments that are bound by recorded governing documents that oblige homeowners to comply with certain covenants that were established to enhance the lifestyle of its residents. Whereas, easement agreements and land restrictions have been around for hundreds of years, community associations rapidly increased in popularization in the 1960s. The have become firmly entrenched in Americana and are typically associated with newly developed residential subdivisions. However, commercial parcels may also be subject to a community association. Because of the fact that community associations are created through a set of governing documents recorded against the land upon which they arise, they shall continue in perpetuity.

Community Association Law generally involves the day-to-day operations and governance of a planned development such as a community association, homeowners association or condominium.
