Default Suit against HOA

Hello! I'm not one to file a suit, but it seems I might have to. Does anyone know what kind of lawyer I would need to initiate a lawsuit against my Home Owner's Association in order to capture remedy for damages suffered to my town home due to negligence and lack of disclosure?

Thanks so much!

Why would the HOA be involved in disclosing anything about negligence to your townhome? Shouldn't that fall on the previous owners?

Good luck, any good HOA has top quality lawyers and battles against them typically involve you wasting a lot of your time and $$.

HOA's, in many cases, are responsible for exterior maintenance of the structures. I do wonder, however, why these problems didn't show up in your home inspection?

Most HOA's I've been familiar with do not have a lot of extra resources to pay "top quality lawyers" for a court battle. Your local (or state) bar association might be able to give you a list of local attorneys with relevant real estate experience. Good luck!
