Wisconsin Condominium Lawyers

The real estate lawyers of Halling & Cayo have extensive knowledge and skill with all matters of condominium law. Whether you’re looking to develop or convert a condominium building, draft condominium by-laws or articles of incorporation, or purchase an individual condominium unit, our attorneys are prepared to help you achieve your goal.

Homeowners associations (HOAs) and condominium associations are legal entities that are governed by residents. Most HOA’s allow property owners to make collective decisions about issues that affect their residential property. This means that HOAs resemble a localized form of government with board members and meetings to establish common policies on issues such as covenants, conditions and restrictions. Whether your current situation involves enforcement of bylaws or the negotiation of a construction contract, we ensure that the legal strategy we develop is dedicated to pursuing the end result you need.

Our lawyers provide personalized attention to every case. Our thorough research and preparation ensures the strength of your case, and as your attorneys, we inform you of the steps that are involved in the legal process. Whether you are a member of a management company, an officer or a member of the board of directors of a condominium association, we can work with you.

For more information about how we can help you with your condominium needs, please contact us at (414) 271-3400 or contact us to set up a consultation.
