Homeowners Associations Law

Last updated on September 24, 2021

At Birch Horton Bittner & Cherot, our homeowners association (HOA) practice group has extensive experience with the particular legal intricacies unique to homeowner and condominium associations. These community associations are nonprofit corporations tasked with such responsibilities as maintaining the common areas within the community, managing the community’s finances, and enforcing the guidelines in the covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs). The fields of law covered by association issues include civil litigation, bankruptcy, real estate, corporations, Alaska’s Common Interest Ownership Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and the Fair Housing Act, among many others. Birch Horton Bittner & Cherot attorneys are proud to represent HOAs and remain committed to providing the highest quality legal services, including:

  • Collecting delinquent assessments
  • Enforcing association lien rights
  • Developing and enforcing articles of incorporation, bylaws, CC&Rs, and other governing documents
  • Counseling on the interpretation of governing documents
  • Assisting in resolving disputes and addressing situations before they escalate into expensive problems
  • Sending notices to owners of CC&R violations and application of penalties

Our attorneys have experience with all the day-to-day problems an association faces and can help to ensure that your community is efficient and well-managed. Birch Horton Bittner & Cherot advocates can help your association craft commonsense solutions to a variety of problems.
