Common Sense Collections
Of the many things an association board needs to worry about, assessment collections do not need to be one of them!
Richards Law has been, and remains, your one-stop law firm for all of your HOA’s legal needs, including collections. We call our unique collections program “Common Sense Collections” because it “makes sense” that a delinquent owner should be responsible for not only bringing the account current but also paying for legal fees related to collections.
Under our Common Sense Collections program, we do not take a portion of the recovery like a collection agency or other attorneys. We strive for 100% of what the HOA is owed and 100% of legal fees incurred — all from the owner!
Our firm has been working with HOA boards since 2004 to collect on delinquent accounts and resolve disputes with homeowners. John Richards, Esq., has been doing HOA collections since 1999. Our attorneys were the first to introduce a deferred attorney fee collection program in Utah.
We provide a fast-track resolution process to bring delinquent accounts current in a cost-effective manner. We believe that we have the most effective system in the State of Utah.
We Make It Easy For You
Richards Law has a full-time staff of assessment collection professionals to assist your association with all of the issues that arise in each step of a collection matter. We have one person assigned for every step of the collection process, which is overseen by Patsy Young, Esq.
As attorneys, we have (in most cases) a statutory and contractual right to recover our fees from delinquent owners. In most situations, the HOA pays nothing in attorney fees. Please contact us for details as some exceptions apply.
Further, we offer online accessibility that allows our clients to obtain real-time information regarding their collection accounts with us. Our online collections system keeps you informed of all progress, issues and updates as they are made so you have up-to-date information heading into a board or annual meeting.
Collection remedies are broad. We know them all. Why trust another firm with less experience? Shouldn’t your accounts be handled by the best professionals in the business?
Our firm offers educational services and seminars regarding a wide range of HOA and condo issues, including collections, CC&Rs, bylaws, amendments and enforcement. Please see our overview of HOA education and seminars to learn more.
