Szura & Delonis is a Michigan-based law firm with over 20 years of experience representing clients in matters related to condominium, homeowner (HOA), and other residential community associations.
Our firm’s condominium and HOA practice is led by attorney Richard M. Delonis. Mr. Delonis has first-hand knowledge of the challenges related to these associations, both legal and otherwise, having served as the president of a condominium association for eight years. His collective experience as a lawyer and board member gives him a unique perspective for providing holistic legal solutions to our condominium and HOA clients.
Some of the Legal Services We Provide to Our Condominium and HOA Clients
Condominium associations, HOAs, and other related organizations have a wide range of legal needs. The services we provide can be grouped into three categories:
- Transactional and Administrative: We prepare bylaws, amend organizational documents, and review/draft other contracts related to the needs of our association clients. Additionally, we provide legal administrative support for preparing notices to members, holding annual meetings, board meetings, and elections, and other related legal processes.
- Compliance: Another component of our firm’s association practice is helping our clients comply with their bylaws and other governing documents. The purpose of compliance is to mitigate risk and protect the integrity of the organization. We also aid in the compliance efforts of HOAs and condominium associations regarding federal, state, and local laws that regulate their activity.
- Litigation and Dispute Resolution: The transaction and compliance aspects of our association practice are designed to limit the risk of conflicts that require litigation, arbitration, or other dispute resolution. However, some conflicts are unavoidable.
In such cases, our firm is ready to handle our clients’ disputes related to their associations. We provide guidance on collection proceedings for assessments and bylaws enforcement. We also handle conflicts with developers, service providers, and other third parties with a pragmatic focus on the cost and outcome of these disputes.
We understand that the needs and concerns of our association clients are constantly changing. We are committed to keeping informed of these needs and providing our clients with modern and effective legal solutions.
