Drafting, Revising and Interpreting Governing Documents

The initial governing documents for a planned community are written by the developer\sponsor. For obvious reasons, these governing documents may not reflect the collective values and priorities of the members once the builder is gone. Once transition occurs and the membership gains control of the Association, it is important to have your attorney review the governing documents and make those changes that are necessary to insure the best interests of the members themselves. Additionally, laws change and associations and association law firms continue to develop creative ways to administer an Association so that everyone can enjoy the maximum benefits of an association at the lowest possible cost. Therefore it is important to work with your law firm to insure that your governing documents reflect the most up-to-date and efficient tools for the administration of the community.
