Community Associations

A Law Firm for All Seasons
Vandeventer Black’s Community Association team provides legal services to help our clients weather all manner of legal issues.  As one of the most progressive community association practices in the region, we represent clients in the full spectrum of legal issues specific to community association law. We work with boards and managing agents on the multi-faceted 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 represent many associations that have transitioned from declarant control, Vandeventer Black is also experienced in drafting the legal documents to create communities and in counseling associations as they go through the transition process.

Great Visibility
We serve as legal counsel to community associations throughout Virginia, including Hampton Roads, Williamsburg, Virginia’s Eastern Shore and Richmond, as well as OBX and Northeastern North Carolina. 

Protection on All Fronts
We incorporate the talents of several practice areas, including construction, employment, fair housing, environmental, taxation, corporate, finance, and contracts.  By integrating these practices into our Community Association practice, we are able to meet the needs of the associations we serve.  Collection of assessments is a perennial issue facing communities. We excel at effective and efficient collections. By investing in technology, dedicating staff specifically to assessment collection and cultivating a roster of attorneys to prosecute cases, we produce superior results that provide a positive return to our clients.  We are seasoned in the broad range of creditors’ rights, including liens, foreclosures and bankruptcy.

Weathering the Storm
Vandeventer Black has a team of experienced litigators to support community associations with disputes that arise, including warranty obligations, construction defects, contracts, covenants and rules enforcement, governance, insurance, and surety claims.  As practitioners of all forms of dispute resolution, we take pride in using creative ideas to help our clients resolve disputes in the most efficient manner.

Preparedness and Forecast
At Vandeventer Black, we take pride in staying current on the law and trends in this niche area of the law and in providing leadership in the Community Associations Institute, a national organization with local chapters whose purpose is to promote, improve and advance the interests of community associations, and the community at large.
