Skilled advocates represent shareholders in various community disputes
Our firm represents resident shareholders in developed communities with all types of cases, including:
- Unsafe conditions — Homeowners associations are required to maintain safe conditions in all common areas. However, sometimes this does not occur due to negligence or cost-cutting. We can explain their legal duties and whether action can be taken to improve community safety.
- Arbitrary rules and enforcement — Unfortunately, neighbors who have authority within a homeowners association sometimes enact rules that have no connection to the community’s well-being. Other times, selective enforcement is used as a means of settling personal scores. If you’ve been victimized by an association that’s out of control, we can advise you on your options.
- Financial impropriety — Our New York attorneys work with clients who believe the board overseeing their property has misused funds or breached their fiduciary duty. If a board member seems to be favoring their personal interests over the community’s needs, a violation might have occurred.
The Law Office of Terrance J. Dougherty, Esq. represents unit owners for these conflicts and other issues that arise with community and homeowners associations. When it seems that you have no recourse for decisions that have gone against you, we can help.
