This is an important legal responsibilty . Many association simply sign contracts presented to them without having a skilled and experienced business lawyer and contract litigator review the contract. Many contacts contain provisions that limit or even waive the liability of vendors, professionals and other contractors for their negligence and mistakes. Some contacts even require the association to indemnify, hold harmless and release the other contracting party in the event of litigation. Cowie & Mott’s business law attorneys understand these contractual provisions and have extensive experience litigating theses provisions before courts of law when a contractual dispute arises. We know from practical experience how contracts should be written to protect the rights of condominium and homeowners associations. Contracts should have standards of performance an completion dates by which performance can be judged to avoid contactal disputes or, in the event of a dispute to allow for the association to successfully pursue enforcement and breach of contract claims.
