Protecting your property rights against the actions of your HOA

Living in an Arizona community governed by an HOA has many benefits. These organizations keep up the common areas, maintain community pools and protect the property values of the homes in the neighborhood. When you moved into your home and signed the agreement with the HOA, you probably never imagined you would be in a dispute with this organization in the future.

HOAs sometimes overstep their authority, ultimately infringing on the rights of the homeowners. These situations can be complicated, and homeowners often find it necessary to take legal action as they work to resolve the situation in a reasonable manner. If you are in a dispute with your HOA, your rights could be at stake. You will find it beneficial to learn how you can protect your interests.

Why is title insurance an important part of your home purchase?

You may have scoured Scottsdale for the perfect home for you and your family. Now that you have made your choice and put in an offer that the seller accepted, you want to move forward as quickly as possible so that you can move into your new home.

It doesn't work that way, however. Numerous issues require attention before the closing. One of them is the issue of title insurance. You need it in order to provide you with protection should someone come forward at some point in the future and make a claim to your property. Before issuing the policy, the title company will conduct as thorough a search as possible.

What type of commercial lease are you looking for?

Real estate agents will tell you that location is the most important factor you need to consider when looking for a space from which to operate your business. While that is important, it cannot be the only deciding factor. As you begin your hunt for space to rent here in Scottsdale, you need to consider the type of lease you could end up with as well.

Renting commercial space has some crucial differences from renting a place to live. The most important difference is the different types of leases used by property owners. During your search, you may want to inquire about what type of lease a particular property owner favors, because it could affect whether you can afford the property.

Simple steps for avoiding issues over construction projects

Construction projects are complex and expensive, and when problems arise, it can be difficult to know how to reach a reasonable resolution. Due to the nature of construction, almost every project will experience setbacks due to weather, manpower, supplies and other factors. It is smart for both parties to know how to proceed in the event of an expected situation or setback.

If you are an Arizona homeowner building a new residential property or you are a business owner building space for your company, you have invested a significant amount of time and effort into your project. Delays, problems and defects can equate to money out of your pocket, and you would be wise to know what to do to protect your interests. When you know how to address disputes and avoid unnecessary complications, you save yourself time, money and a significant amount of stress.
