creating desirable communities

Lerch Early attorneys are experienced in creating and amending community association governing documents. We review and interpret governing documents in light of not only current issues, but also considering their impact on future board decisions.

When we provide our opinion, we focus on not only explaining its basis, but the risk of deviation and the practical implications for how the opinion affects the board and the community.  We recommend that associations review and update their governing documents every five years to incorporate changes to the law, to make them current with existing procedures, to make them more readable (less legalese, more plain English), to reflect current technology and services, to address operation issues that arise, and to include any other changes in the association’s policies and practices.
