Michigan Homeowners Association Law Practice Areas
The Michigan HOA lawyers at Hirzel Law, PLC are known for our extensive experience, responsiveness and ability to resolve complex legal issues. We are committed to educating clients, as well as effecting change in homeowners association legislation on a federal level. Our HOA law practice areas include:
In Michigan, a homeowners association must regularly review and update its articles of incorporation, bylaws, covenants, declarations and deed restrictions to ensure they comply with applicable laws, and adequately address owners’ needs and changes in technology. Updating your Michigan HOA’s governing documents will often avoid costly litigation.
Regulations help homeowners associations operate in an orderly manner, uphold community aesthetics, preserve property values and protect property owners’ health, safety and welfare. Enforcing covenants, declarations and deed restrictions is a very important job, but is often time-consuming and complicated.
Michigan homeowners associations rely heavily on collecting assessments from property owners to provide essential services and fund HOA operations. Whenever an owner fails to pay an assessment, the other owners are unfairly forced to shoulder the burden. Collecting these unpaid assessments is critical for optimal functioning.
There are several areas of HOA law that require specific expertise to garner the best results. Whether you need to resolve contractual disputes with vendors, pursue wrongfully denied insurance claims, assure your interests are represented in board meetings, or you just need advice or written opinions, we can help.
