Condo & HOA Collections are specialized so community association lawyers are naturally the best solution… right? Well it ain’t necessarily so. Community Association Attorneys are often focused on other serious matters from condo defects to changing governing documents. Frivolous matters such as slander are on their agenda, because board members will often say things and offense is taken. Once offense taken the lawyer is called. Community Association Lawyers often do not have the tools to cure delinquencies beyond litigation. Such tools as skip-tracing, outbound call centers, credit bureau reporting, and most important the personal touch to collect debt. Condo & HOA Collections require specialists and in these matters the licensed and regulated specialists are collection agencies.
Mr. Collections man our community association has some members who are not paying their maintenance fees and our attorney bills are already more than what is owed. Is there no other way to collect these fees without spending more money for these condo collections.
