Larsenlearn clarity in a complex world
Legislation often tends to be extraordinarily complex. Keeping up to speed with the direction and modifications of the law can be confusing and tedious. It’s no wonder lawyers endure additional schooling for many years pursuing a specialized degree in order to practice law and keep up with continuing education. Members of the board of directors in a condo or homeowners’ association will be tasked with comprehending and even enforcing some of the large, indecipherable run-on sentences that comprise our state statutes. In addition, law is never static; it is constantly changing and ever-evolving. You may finally wrap your head around a piece of legislation, only to have it altered to convey something different entirely. At Larsen, we understand how difficult and frustrating it can be trying to make sense of some of the legal guidelines that enforce our communities. That is why we developed LarsenLearn. With LarsenLearn, we offer continuous education to our clients and community association managers. This includes semi-annual workshops and seminars, DBPR-approved courses for CAM license credits, legal update courses, board certification courses and much more. We have carefully constructed brochures, memos, flowcharts and diagrammatic materials in order to assist your association. Furthermore, our attorneys are equipped with the knowledge and experience to direct your community on all legal matters. Larsen will be your clarity in a world of legislative complexity.
A collections process like no other
In a perfect world, residents of deed-restricted communities are courteous of their neighbors, passionate about their association and pay their dues routinely; understanding that the money they contribute benefits the community as a whole. Unfortunately though, we do not live in a perfect world. Whether it may be financial hardship, apathy, disdain, or even resentment toward the association, some unit owners simply do not pay their assessments. Owners that are delinquent in paying assessments place undue stress and financial pressure upon an association. This strain is felt not only by the board, but can affect all owners within the community. General upkeep and maintenance of properties may fall by the wayside as the board of directors struggles to uphold their budgetary restrictions. In order to obtain the money owed from unit owners, community associations often have no choice but to explore legal channels. For a board that is already wrestling with money issues, attorneys’ fees can add another world of unnecessary hardship. As innovators in our field, Larsen recognizes the concerns our clients have when attempting to collect delinquent assessments and we realize that community associations in need of collection services are often hindered by budget concerns. That is why we provide Deferred Billing as an option for our collections cases. Under Florida Law, a delinquent homeowner is responsible for payment of the attorneys’ fees and costs. Our collections fees are first charged to the delinquent owner, not to your association; eliminating the stress and hassle of the collections process. We are dedicated to formulating the best strategies for your association - we will meet with you personally in order to create the most effective plan. Furthermore, we enable delinquent homeowners to make payments by credit card at no additional cost to your association or the homeowner, keeping things simple and convenient. At Larsen, our collections process is more than just innovative, it’s revolutionary!
