Community Association Law

Porter McGuire Kiakona & Chow, LLP (PMKC) is a recognized leader in the area of community association law. We provide legal advice on the operations and governance of homeowners, condominium and community associations of all sizes across the Hawaiian Islands. We offer a wide range of legal services to address each association’s unique needs.

Our primary services:

  • Collection of delinquent assessments
  • Enforcement of association rules and covenants
  • Foreclosures
  • Negotiation of service contracts
  • Review and amendment of association governing documents
  • Stakeholders’ disputes
  • Litigation

 

We understand associations depend on assessments to fund community maintenance and services. Recognizing the importance of reducing delinquent assessments, we implement effective and efficient collection methods to ensure community standards are sustained.

Boards and property managers often want expert legal advice, as enforcing the community’s rules in accordance with its governing documents can be a challenge. After thoroughly reviewing association by-laws and covenants, our attorneys work one-on-one with association representatives to resolve current disputes and prevent future conflicts.

Many of our attorneys are members of the Community Association Institute. Engaging local association boards, property managers, and other industry professionals, our partners frequently speak on association law developments at educational seminars.
