The 2018 enaction of the Washington Uniform Common Interest Ownership Act complicated the landscape for developers in creating associations and for homeowners living within them. Praedium Law Group demystifies the process. We represent Homeowners’ Associations, often initiating the attorney-client relationship with the community’s developer before construction has commenced. We oversee community development and provide legal advice throughout construction.
Praedium Law Group also assists developers and unincorporated associations with forming a legal entity, preparing the necessary governing documents such as Articles of Incorporation, CC&Rs, and Bylaws, leading the Association and its Board through the turnover process, and providing counsel in the Board’s subsequent governance of the Association. We provide guidance in enforcement of CC&Rs, litigation, liens, and, when necessary and appropriate, foreclosure actions.
