Program Summary

Session I - Development, Formation, and Conversion Processes and Documents 101 – Eric Langston

Using the Uniform Condominium Act and Uniform Common Interest Ownership Act as a guide, this program will explore the common issues arising as condominiums are formed through development of new property or conversion of existing property. The program will also briefly touch on the co-op form of ownership as an alternative ownership structure.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Uniform laws
  • Types of ownership structures
  • Development and conversion issues

Session II - Digging into Declarations, Bylaws, and Rules – Eric Langston

This program will explore common issues that boards of owners’ associations face and provide tips for practitioners advising boards faced with owners who flaunt the rules. The program will highlight how provisions of the governing documents come together for operationalization, including the protection of due process rights for owners. Best practices for board governance will also be addressed.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Drafting tips and key provisions
  • Enforcement actions and constitutional protections for owners
  • Board governance

Session III – Community Associations – Austin Baillio

Community associations are heavily regulated entities. These regulations can dictate simple things like how and when a meeting can take place to what types of insurance must be obtained by the entity. Likewise, these regulations can influence how an association can enforce its governing documents and collect unpaid assessments. Those who control these entities need to understand the authorities that govern how associations are run to avoid potential pitfalls.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Governance and Management of Association
  • Enforcement of Governing Documents
  • Collection of Assessments

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.
