Michigan Homeowners Association Lawyers
Michigan Homeowners Association Collections Attorneys
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 of the homeowners association’s operating costs. Our HOA attorneys can help collect unpaid assessments.
Michigan homeowners associations must be aggressive, proactive and diligent in pursuing delinquent owners for unpaid assessments. This helps ensure your homeowners association can continue to provide essential services to all owners.
Instead of handling this complicated process yourself, leave collections to the experienced HOA attorneys at Hirzel Law, PLC. We pursue assessment collections in the most straightforward manner possible.
Our award-winning HOA lawyers handle all aspects of collection activities including:
- the initial demand letter
- recording a lien for unpaid assessments
- foreclosing by advertisement
- judicial foreclosure
- filing a complaint for a money judgment
- bankruptcy issues
- lien priority issues
- collecting judgments
Recovering Attorney Fees and Costs
In most cases, the restrictive covenants, declaration or deed restrictions allow for the homeowners association to recover the attorney’s fees and costs that are incurred in pursuing collections. Given that the attorney’s fees and costs are added onto the unpaid assessments that are to be paid by the owner, homeowners associations do not have an excuse for failing to take action to collect unpaid assessments.
Online Collection Portal
We offer an online collection portal for homeowners associations to make collections relatively easy. If you sign up for our Premium Service Plan, there is no cost to use the online collection portal to track your collections. The Premium Service Plan has many other benefits and provides an estimated value of $5,000 in services for just $999.
