Our lawyers are well-regarded throughout Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Peninsula for personal service and sound legal guidance with respect to a variety of real property issues, including:

  • Real estate agreements: Leases, sales contracts, financing agreements and closing documents are essential in real property matters. If you are entering into a commercial or residential property agreement, our lawyers can review every detail of your transaction, help you negotiate agreements, draft documents and protect your interests in your real estate transaction.
  • Property disputes: Our attorneys have nearly 40 years of experience protecting the property rights of our clients in real property litigation. We represent HOAs, homeowners, commercial property owners, public entities and others in a wide range of areas, including title disputes, resolving incorrect property lines, easement problems, trespass, nuisance and more.

Condominium and Homeowner Association Matters

Most community associations are formed as nonprofit organizations. Boards are bound by many regulations governing nonprofits and California community association laws. We guide clients through the labyrinth of rules to help ensure that our clients remain in compliance with the overarching laws that impact homeowners associations (HOAs).

In the regular course of business, board members must work within the scope of authority of the covenants, conditions and restrictions (CC&Rs) of the individual homeowners association. To control the cost of dispute resolution when a problem arises, our lawyers work with HOAs to resolve disputes efficiently through negotiation, mediation or arbitration. But our experienced litigators will take a case to trial when necessary to protect the interests of a client.
