A Lawyer May Not Be Necessary in Your Case
While more complex condominium and homeowner association disputes are best handled by a seasoned commercial litigation attorney, there are alternatives to litigation that can be pursued without a lawyer in less complicated cases, including:
- If you feel that the association is not following the law, you can file a complaint against them.
- If there is an argument over what the law means or how it applies in your situation, you can petition the Florida Division of Land Sales, Condominiums and Mobile Homes to make a declaratory statement.
- You can pursue mandatory non-binding arbitration. This is like a mini-trial where the arbitrator acts as a judge and makes a decision. If you are unhappy with the decision, you can still insist on pursuing litigation, although there may be financial penalties for doing so.
- If the association will agree to it, you can turn arbitration into mediation, which is a settlement negotiation guided by a trained third party.
While these avenues can be pursued without the help of an attorney, we can handle these steps for you, saving you unnecessary time and stress. Whether you pursue these options or want to pursue litigation, we will work diligently to achieve the best possible result for you.
