Condominium & HOA

Assessments to zoning: Husch Blackwell has extensive experience with condo association and HOA law.

More than 650 Wisconsin condominium and homeowners associations (HOAs) trust Husch Blackwell to handle their unique real estate, corporate, construction, environmental, contract, insurance, finance, tax, bankruptcy and litigation issues. Our law firm's HOA and condo association attorneys have extensive experience assisting condominium associations and HOAs with enforcing their rules and restrictions, managing common amenities, amending declarations and bylaws, collecting delinquent assessments, and defending (and better yet, avoiding) HUD and Fair Housing Act issues. We partner with our clients to develop strategies for dealing with condominium unit owners, developers, contractors, insurance companies and banks.

Only two Wisconsin attorneys are admitted to the prestigious College of Community Association Lawyers (CCAL), which recognizes excellence in the practice, and both are on our Husch Blackwell team. Our HOA and condominium attorneys also are involved as speakers, writers, members and leaders of industry organizations such as the Community Associations Institute (CAI) and Urban Land Institute (ULI).

Our guidance to condominium and HOA clients includes:

  • Assessments, liens and foreclosures
  • Board member powers, duties and protections
  • Construction defects and contracts
  • Contracts with vendors and property managers
  • Declarations, bylaws and rules
  • Fair housing/discrimination issues
  • HUD loan certification
  • Insurance
  • Maintenance and repair checklists
  • Notice requirements
  • Rentals and leasing
  • Reserve account issues
  • Unit sales and purchases
  • Turnover from developer
  • Voting procedures
