Sub and Master Associations
We represent many sub and master associations. Our attorneys are intricately familiar with the complexities and conflicts that can arise when a sub-association's board of directors must adopt and enforce its own association's governing documents, including operating rules and architectural guidelines, while at the same time ensuring that the sub-association's governing document provisions do not contradict with the master association's governing document provisions. We have dealt with master/sub-association disputes related to maintenance and repair easements and obligations, and competing architectural, landscape, and aesthetic concerns. We are also familiar with the process of governance by delegates and district/neighborhood representatives, and we have substantial experience advising boards of sub-associations and master associations on the differences in statutory election and voting requirements, and representation, applicable to those positions versus customary director positions.
