Legal Services | Condominium Law

Condominium law is a highly specialized and growing area of legal practice in New England. The idea of maintenance-free living along the seacoast and lakes of New Hampshire and Maine has attracted thousands to the region. This tremendous growth has led to an increasing need for specialized legal help managing the businesses of owning and running condominium and homeowners associations.
Many association directors are new to board membership and unfamiliar with the statutes, legal requirements, rules and regulations for association management. As a result, many are unfamiliar with the broad scope of condominium law and those issues associated with indemnification, legal procedures for dealing with difficult tenants, insurance issues, and the importance of bylaws. Understanding the legal issues involved is essential for avoiding exposure to liability should a lawsuit arise involving a board member or the condominium association as a whole.
