Commercial and Mixed-Use Associations

Commercial associations have their own unique issues, often involving tenants, shared access and the like. We have set up and represented many commercial and mixed-use associations throughout the Charlotte metro area and around North Carolina. Commercial and mixed-use developments often have overlapping sets of restrictions which must be understood to represent the association effectively, so the experience of Zac Moretz, a Board Certified Specialist in Commercial Real Estate Law, and our experienced real estate paralegals come in especially handy. We help unit owners, board members, developers and management companies work through problems and help make changes to the restrictions as uses changes or developments grow. Some of the areas we assist our commercial and mixed-use association clients with include:

  • Collections, liens and foreclosures
  • Board meetings, budget meetings and annual meetings
  • Architectural review issues and drafting architectural guidelines
  • Covenant violations and violation hearings
  • Amendment to covenants such as adding architectural standards and maintenance provisions
  • Cross-access and maintenance issues for shared driveways, entrances, dumpsters, and the like
  • Public and private road issues and working with the N.C. DOT and local governments
  • Parking problems
  • Mixed-use issues involving disputes between residential and commercial users
  • Restaurant issues
  • Issues with contractors
  • Reviewing and advising regarding management company contracts
  • Mergers of associations or issues involving master and sub-associations
  • Drafting bylaws, policies, procedures, resolutions and other association documents
  • Assisting with developer transition issues
  • Litigation involving associations
  • Water, sewer and utility line and service issues
  • If it involves commercial development, leasing, mixed-use issues or commercial associations, we’ve probably seen it before and can help you through it.
  • We don’t represent individual unit owners against their associations.
