Resources is the blog for our Community Association Practice Group. It includes all of the “Association Answers” columns we have published in the Charlotte Observer and the Raleigh News & Observer since 2012. Also included are guest columns written by other attorneys and HOA professionals, industry announcements, updates on important legislation and case law developments, and lots of other information useful for HOA boards, managers, and homeowners. There’s even a humorous War Stories section. By subscribing to the blog, you will receive an email whenever we post something new to the blog, which is typically no more than twice per month. Your email address will not be sold or shared.
