    What Is Co-Op and Condominium Representation?

    Co-op and condominium representation refers to lawyers who specialize in the issues that can come up for you as a co-op or condominium owner. Lawyers who specialize in co-op disputes are usually retained by the co-op or homeowner’s association (HOA) that you rent from, buy from or join. As a renter or owner, you may need a condo dispute lawyer because coop attorneys hired by co-ops and HOAs have a duty to represent the organization. In other words, they don’t always see a matter from your perspective as an individual renter or owner.

    If you find yourself in a dispute that may possibly turn into real estate litigation, you should have the best legal advice available without having to spend big bucks just to get a consultation. Albert Maimone & Associates is a boutique law firm practicing in the five boroughs of New York City. They give you a free consultation and promise a review of your matter within 48 hours so you can determine your next moves. This way, you get the best and quickest service without the highest fees.

    Why Do I Need Co-Op or Condominium Representation?

    As an owner or renter at a co-op or condo, you may need representation if you get into conflict with neighbors, the co-op board or the HOA that requires the board or HOA to get involved. Issues vary for owners, renters and boards, which is why you should seek guidance from a third-party cooperative attorney who specializes in these matters. In addition to neighbor disputes, the other common issues a condo dispute lawyer may get involved with include:

    You may need to have a coop attorney or condo lawyer whether you’re the one who has the complaint or when the complaint is against you. Co-ops and HOAs can both operate in complex ways that are difficult to understand. A timely and free consult from the best real estate law experts in the five boroughs can set your mind at ease and let you know how to move forward in the best way.

    How Do I Know It’s Time to Call a Co-op or Condo Lawyer?

    If you’re involved in a dispute with a neighbor, your HOA or co-op board, consult lawyers who specialize in coop disputes as soon as possible. Getting a free consult with Albert Maimone & Associates doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re starting a lawsuit. It just means you’re seeking guidance on what your next steps should be.

    New York City is a competitive real estate market that can be difficult to understand, and as an owner or renter, you may need assistance to know how to stand up for yourself and when to pursue civil litigation. Whether you’re a renter, a condo owner, or a co-op member, there are a common set of conflicts that can occur, such as:

    • Disputes about subletting or using your apartment as an Airbnb
    • Possible discrimination during or after the application process
    • Unfair rules passed by the board or HOA
    • New fees that you have to pay to remain a member
    • Unaddressed service needs like power, safety, amenities or cleanliness
    • Issues with the common areas
    • Neighbor disputes
    • Rules regarding pets
    • Conflicts about noise
    • Suspected fraud or corrupt practice on the board or HOA
    • Unjustified fines

    You may be on either end of a complaint. Don’t assume that you’re wrong just because someone has accused you of violating a rule or improper conduct. Consult a condo dispute lawyer or cooperative attorney to ensure you receive fair and equitable results.
