Homeowners Association (HOA) Litigation

CIM is accomplished in representing both homeowners and homeowners' associations in HOA litigation. Our attorneys are well versed in the law applicable to homeowners' associations, including directors' duties, assessments, HOA liens, open meetings, HOA records, CC&R enforcement, developer turnover, accounting, attorneys' fees, and director elections.
Our HOA lawyers are highly experienced in both defending homeowners in HOA initiated litigation and assisting homeowners in prosecuting claims against HOAs. We recognize that the costs involved in HOA disputes can be significant, and therefore make every effort to resolve disputes short of litigation. In the event litigation becomes necessary, however, CIM is prepared to aggressively defend or prosecute the homeowner's claims.
CIM has handled HOA disputes, both small and complex, which have been recognized by many local media outlets. Steven W. Cheifetz was featured on an ABC 15 News report Controlling HOAs about their disregard for homeowners. In it's efforts to protect homeowner's, CIM has obtained four published opinions regarding HOAs before the Court of Appeals. Dreamland Villa Community Club, Inc. v. Raimey, 224 Ariz. 42, 226 P.3d 411 (2010); Raimey v. Hon. J. Ditsworth et al., 227 Ariz. 552, 261 P.3d 436 (2011); Burke v. Voice Stream Wireless Corporation, 207 Ariz. 393, 87 P.3d 81 (2004); McNally v. Sun Lakes Homeowners Association #1, Inc. 240 Ariz. 534, 382 P.3d 1216 (2016).
