creating desirable communities

The collection of delinquent assessments can be a frustrating and time-consuming task. Lerch Early assists our community association clients with collections using a vigorous and consistent approach. We are experienced in filing liens against individual unit owners, initiating lawsuits for the collection of assessments and seeking enforcement of those judgments through garnishments, and, if necessary, foreclosing upon the property.

Our lawyers supervise a team of experienced collections paralegals. To assist our clients, the paralegals obtain deeds to confirm ownership, prepare and forward notices of intention to create a lien, file liens, and perform a variety of other tasks toward the collection and resolution of the delinquent account.

We have an extensive in-house collections system, including a collection agency license, in-house credit access capabilities, the ability to pull land records and foreclosure information, and technology that allows us to track cases from the first notice of delinquency through resolution, including all debtor contact with our office. These capabilities allow us to provide prompt and effective service.
