Vandeventer Black’s Community Association team provides legal counsel catered specifically to the needs of condominium and property owners associations. We are one of the most progressive community association practices in the region, representing clients in the full spectrum of legal issues specific to community association law. We work with boards and managing agents on the multifaceted issues presented, on a daily basis as well as in less typical situations. We provide strategic guidance in the interpretation, review and development of governing documents and operational issues and assist with developing and implementing policy. Although we primarily represent associations that have transitioned from declarant control, Vandeventer Black is experienced in representing developers in local government issues and drafting the legal documents to create community associations and in counseling associations as they go through the transition process.
We serve as legal counsel to community associations throughout Virginia, including Hampton Roads, Williamsburg, Virginia’s Eastern Shore and Richmond, as well as the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
Collection of assessments are a vital issue facing all communities. Vandeventer Black excels at effective and efficient collections. By investing in technology, dedicating a paralegal specifically to assessment collection and a staff of associates to prosecute cases, we produce superior results that provide a positive return to our clients.
Vandeventer Black takes pride in staying current on the law and trends in this evolving niche area of the law and in providing leadership in the Community Associations Institute, a national organization whose purpose is to promote, improve and advance community associations.
Our Community Association practice incorporates the talents of several practice areas, including construction, employment, fair housing, environmental, taxation, banking and finance, contracts and alternative dispute resolution. By integrating these practices into our Community Association practice, we are able to meet the challenges of the community associations we serve.
