Community Association Attorneys

Condominiums ∙ Townhomes ∙ Fee-Simple Single Family Residences

Homeowners from a variety of generations are choosing to live in "common interest communities," which include condominiums, townhomes, and other properties as part of a homeowner association. Shivers, Gosnay & Greatrex, LLC represents homeowner associations and individuals who are members of homeowner associations in Southern New Jersey. Currently 1.3 million people live in 6,600 community associations in New Jersey.

If you have a legal concern regarding a homeowner association or other common interest community, contact a lawyer from our firm. If you are thinking of purchasing a property in such a community, we can help you identify what to look for before buying. This includes an examination of the rules, regulations and architectural guidelines that would likely apply in the community, as well as the financial condition of the association, among other issues.

Experienced Legal Representation For Homeowners Associations

As a past president of the Board of Directors of a local condominium association and legal counsel to several associations for over 20 years, attorney George Greatrex offers clients knowledgeable guidance and experience. He is a member of the Community Associations Institute (CAI) and a frequent lecturer to homeowners, Board members, property managers and other lawyers on the topic of homeowner association governance. George was joined by Gregg Shivers in the practice in 2000. Gregg is certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a civil trial attorney and his extensive trial experience has helped our associations to tackle many complex issues, including taking on foreclosing mortgage lenders that transactional law firms are not nearly as well-equipped to handle. Currently, over 180 homeowners associations rely on Mr. Greatrex and the staff at Shivers, Gosnay & Greatrex, LLC for effective legal representation.

Our Cherry Hill, New Jersey law firm represents associations and association members in concerns involving:

  • Assessment collections
  • Enforcement of association rules and architectural guidelines
  • Drafting, revising and interpreting governing documents
  • Transition from builder/developer to association members
  • Association litigation
  • Rental restrictions
  • Elections and voting procedures
  • Insurance

  • Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Additionally, the attorneys at Shivers, Gosnay & Greatrex, LLC represent homeowners associations before government agencies, such as municipal boards, governing bodies and the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, as well as interacting with local police, code enforcement entities and public utilities.

The firm also represents individuals who live in common interest communities and whose concerns may involve rules enforcement, maintenance and association fees. We assist association members in understanding their responsibilities as members of common interest community associations and, in turn, their associations' legal obligations to the membership.
