Naperville Condominium & Homeowner Association Lawyer
Providing Legal Services in Oak Book, Plainfield, DuPage County, and Throughout the Chicagoland Area
While condominium units are owned separately, the common areas and facilities are all owned and operated through the building’s homeowners’ association. All individual owners must pay fees to the association as well as follow the rules, regulations, and declarations of the group. However, sometimes issues arise within the condominium owners or the homeowners’ association that require the need for an attorney. Our office has successfully worked with clients on many different types of condominium and homeowners’ association issues, and we can help your building with the same.

Our office has experience dealing with a wide variety of condominium and homeowners’ association issues. We can handle anything from a building with less than 10 units to complexes with thousands of individual owners. The attorneys at Lindell & Tessitore P.C. have the background in real estate, business, and commercial law to successfully handle all types of claims, including:

Our office can also help develop the legal framework for the individual condominium units within the building in addition to the rules and regulations of the homeowners’ association.
Illinois Condo and HOA Law
Under Illinois law, the Condominium Property Act, Common Interest Community Association Act, and the Community Association Manager Licensing Act control the majority of the rules, laws, and regulations regarding condominium ownership and homeowners’ association governance. The Association of Condominium, Townhouse, and Homeowners’ Associations (ACTHA) is a nonpartisan group that posts updates on the latest Illinois changes to condominium and homeowners’ association laws.
One important note about condominium and homeowners’ association law that most people are not aware of is that Illinois case law has established that an association’s governing documents and bylaws can provide for the recovery of attorney’s fees. If an association is entitled to enforce its covenants and it has provided in its paperwork for the recovery of attorney’s fees, the association’s costs can be covered if the court allows it.
