Collection of Assessments
The collection of unpaid assessments for community associations is one of the primary services we provide to our association clients. Collection matters for an association must be addressed in accordance with the federal and state Fair Debt Practices Act, as well as the powers that each community possesses according to the association’s governing documents. Unlike some law firms and most collection agencies, our attorneys are directly involved in every collection matter, from the start of the process, through its conclusion.
At Zelmanski, Danner & Fioritto, PLLC, our attorneys are also experienced in bankruptcy law. Occasionally, our association clients are brought into bankruptcy proceedings as creditors of a bankrupt homeowner. Active participation in the Bankruptcy proceedings is essential to ensure that the association’s financial interest are protected. Our attorneys are able to assist our clients in defending and preserving the community association’s rights in Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases filed by homeowners. Bankruptcy services include, but are not limited to: filing appearances, attending the First Meeting of Creditors, preparing proofs of claim, preparing reaffirmation agreements in Chapter 7 cases, objecting to Chapter 11 and Chapter 13 Plans, preparing motions for relief from the automatic stay, and representing the association in adversary proceedings.
We are a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code.
