Helping Condominium Associations Run Smoothly
If you are on the board of a condominium association, you know how disputes can arise between neighbors, between unit owners and the board, even between board members. In many cases, disputes turn quickly into lawsuits, particularly when it is clear that board members don’t have the experience to resolve problems according to the bylaws.
