Standing up for the rights of condo associations

Any time legal issues or disputes arise involving real estate, the entire situation can be very stressful for all involved. However, this is especially true for condominium associations in Miami, and in cities around the rest of Florida. At Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, our firm is familiar with the various types of legal hurdles that condo associations find themselves facing. Moreover, we know how pivotal it is for people in this situation to stand up for their rights.

Developer backs out of major Miami condo project

For homeowners' associations, conflicts with developers may arise for a multitude of reasons. In Miami-Dade, these disputes can be worsened as a result of various regional factors, such as challenges in the condo market. As a result, homeowners' associations may want to stay on top of current trends in the South Florida condo market and should always try to resolve disagreements with developers smoothly. Sometimes, these disputes lead to litigation, at which point it is essential for associations to protect their interests and know their rights.

Miami-Dade sees increase in condominium inventory

For condominium associations, all sorts of issues may arise from time to time. For example, a condo association may become entangled in a legal dispute, have difficulty enforcing documents, become involved in a standoff with a developer or have a hard time collecting funds. In Miami-Dade, and all other parts of Florida, the condominium market is constantly changing, which can also affect condo associations.

Condo prices fall in Miami

When it comes to condos, there are all sorts of considerations for owners as well as prospective buyers. From the location of a unit to association services, there are many points for people in Miami to consider regarding condos. However, it is pivotal for people to follow developments in the South Florida condo market if they plan on selling or purchasing a condo in the region. After all, waiting until the right time to buy or sell a condo can have a tremendous financial impact on those involved.

Suit filed in Miami-Dade County over condominium fees

For those who operate a condominium association, various challenges may arise. For example, an association may become involved in a dispute for a myriad of reasons or struggle with the collection of association fees. In Miami-Dade, and all across the state of Florida, it is crucial for condo associations to carefully assess the details surrounding any problems they are facing. By managing an association and handling any legal issues or disputes properly, condo associations can avoid some serious consequences.

Condo market struggling in South Florida

For people who are thinking about buying a condo, there are a wide variety of issues to take into consideration, such as the location of the unit and the price. When it comes to condo sales, there are many factors that can impact both the buyer as well as the seller, including recent events that have taken place in the region. In Miami-Dade, and throughout the state of Florida, those who are trying to buy or sell a condo should carefully review their options.

Florida condominium owners refuse to sell unit

Sometimes, condominium disputes are particularly challenging. For example, a developer may be unable to raze condos to make way for new units or a family may be worried about losing a place they have called home for many years. In Miami-Dade, it is crucial for people who are in this position to familiarize themselves with the laws in Florida and determine the smartest approach. By handling a condominium dispute appropriately, condo owners could secure a more favorable outcome.

Can my condo association ban indoor smoking?

If you own a condo or are part of a condo association, you may have a wide variety of questions. However, correctly interpreting and enforcing condominium documents is paramount. For example, if you live in Miami and are wondering whether or not your condo association can stop you from smoking indoors, or you wish to have indoor smoking banned by your association due to secondhand smoke exposure, it is vital to understand where Florida law stands.

Before you buy: Is the HVAC in good condition?

Because purchasing a condominium in Miami is such a major step, you will probably want to have the property inspected carefully before signing on the dotted line. While the person you hire to perform the examination will be looking for major problems, he or she is not going to be providing you with the answers to all the important questions, though. Because the climate in Florida makes a fully functional air conditioner a necessity for comfort, the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system is one area where you may want to dig a little deeper than the standard report.

Ensuring uniform, healthy landscaping in your condo community

One of the benefits you may enjoy while living in a Miami, Florida, condominium is the pleasant outdoor environment. This is a typical outcome of well-written rules outlined in your community’s bylaws, covenants and regulations. If you are a member of the board of directors, working on these documents requires careful consideration to best suit the needs of all the residents. We at Cuevas and Garcia, P.A., Attorneys at Law, have worked with many homeowners’ associations that are interested in hiring outside help to take care of landscaping and common areas.
