Throughout the state of California, millions of people live in common interest communities, each of which is governed by a homeowner’s association (HOA). Many of these San Diego, Riverside, Temecula or Palm Springs associations encounter disputes between homeowners or between the homeowners and the HOA itself. Disagreements may arise over a variety of issues, including noise violations, community fee structures, parking rules, restrictions on rental units, and many others. The homeowners who live within these developments deserve to have savvy and tenacious legal counsel they can count on. Homeowner Law is that firm.
The Davis-Stirling Common Interest Development Act (“the Act”) governs condominium, cooperative, and planned unit development communities in California. The Act gives HOAs wide-ranging powers that, often due to lack of education or knowledge, are often misconstrued or abused by the board of directors and management companies who govern over these communities.
Even worse, the Act provides nearly no government oversight, so it is up to you to defend yourself against illegal or inappropriate behavior. If you are on the board of directors and want to ensure your HOA is acting properly, or are a homeowner being subject to discriminatory, retaliatory or predatory behavior by your association, Homeowners Law is here for you.
Here are some of the types of Common Interest Community disputes we assist our homeowner clients with:

Our HOA felt we were in a hopeless situation with minimal legal rights and we didn't trust anyone after what our builders put us through. Dan Zimberoff was always "cautiously optimistic" about our case, but in the end he had turned our situation into a major win that no one expected.
Josie Adams, 1100 East Howell Owners Association
Dan Zimberoff obtained an excellent result for our cohousing condominium association. Though the statute of limitations had expired on our breach of warranty claims, Dan was able to successfully prevail on alternative claims against the Declarant of our condominium.

We would like to thank Dan Zimberoff for his valuable advice and guidance with our construction defect settlement. He educated and guided us during the mediation process and provided valuable insights into the legal terms and process.
Jhansi Reddy, Mira Condominium Owners Association
The long journey toward new CC&R\'s is now over, with deep-felt thanks to you. Without your experience-based wise counsel, we would not have succeeded. I, for one, very much appreciate your sincere support, prompt responses and accountability in billing.
Robert Ellsworth, Village Wiestoria HOA
Our homeowner's association has worked with Dan Zimberoff for the last four years on our construction defect lawsuit. During that time, Dan has worked tirelessly to achieve an equitable settlement that would both correct the problems in our townhomes and would not cost the homeowners any out-of-pocket expenses.
