Are you involved in a neighbor’s dispute and need the help of a FL condo HOA lawyer? You’re supposed to be friends with your neighbors, but times have changed, and the seventies are gone.

The less you know about your neighbors, the less likely you are to get along with them. A condo law attorney can tell you how to handle a neighborhood dispute if you are going through one.

Why Do Neighbor Disputes Happen?

The most common cause of disputes between neighbors is property disagreements, but conflicts can occur over just about anything. Fencing, trees, or unleashed pets might cause these types of arguments, but they can also result in other problems.

Disputes about noise may also arise between neighbors. Most homeowners move to a neighborhood to enjoy a quiet, serene environment. Still, if you have a neighbor who throws noisy parties at 4 a.m., the noise will disrupt your sleep and exacerbate other problems.

When your grass grows up to your knees in the summer, you may invite rodents and other pests to your yard. The lack of proper maintenance of the property is another cause of disputes between neighbors. 

How Can HOA Help with the Dispute?

During a neighbor-to-neighbor dispute, the homeowner’s association (HOA) usually try to dissolve the issue. Homeowners’ associations (HOA) exist to establish covenants, restrictions, and rules that everyone is required to follow. When someone disregards with these covenants, restrictions and/or rules, the HOA should enforce them through the imposition of  fines and other legal methods. 

The association’s property manager is a representative that should help handle this  type of dispute you may have with your neighbor. Once you contact your HOA, let the representative handle the problem until the issue is resolved or another disagreement arises. If you and the HOA representative take over the dispute together, your neighbor can feel gained upon and make matters worse.

But what if an HOA representative does not solve the neighbor’s dispute or refuses to help? You may have to contact a lawyer who specializes in HOA and real estate law. If this issue arises, then contact FL condo lawyers to help.

When Is It Time to Hire an HOA Lawyer?

If you feel as though your HOA representative cannot help with the problem on their own, of if they refuse to help,  then the next step to seeking results is contacting someone who understands Florida HOA laws. An attorney who knows condo law can meet with you to discuss the details of your dispute and determine if the HOA is responsible to resolve it. 

Ferrer Law  Group can inform you of potential legal options for resolving the issue and seeking compensation and if your case moves to court, Ferrer Law Group can file any necessary paperwork and represent your interests in court if necessary.

Do Condo Owners Have Different Rules?

There are disputes not only in homeowner neighborhoods but also with condo residents. When this happens, you will need a lawyer for condo owners to handle the case. 

Disputes between condo owners are similar to those between residents of an HOA neighborhood. However, condos also have many common areas, and they can be located closer than houses in a community.

In any case, condo owners should follow the same process when it comes to settling disputes. The condominium association for the property may need to be involved if talking to a neighbor doesn’t help or makes things worse. Alternatively, you may wish to partner with a condo law attorney to receive the results you desire.
