We practice what is known in our profession as community association law.
A community association is a group of real property owners who mutually obligate themselves through reciprocal covenants (recorded promises) on issues related to the use of their properties. The owners are organized through an association which typically has the power to assess funds for its lawful activities and to enforce reasonable covenants.
The two common forms of community associations in Wisconsin are condominiums and homeowner associations. There are also a few cooperatives in Wisconsin.
Helping an association navigate the issues of fair housing law, covenant interpretation, amendment and enforcement, budgeting, collections and use restrictions; advising on relationships with the developer and builder, with the municipality and with other owners, with local, state and national governments; these are some of the things we do.
