Creating, Managing & Working With Condominiums and Planned Community (Home Owners’) Associations
Since 1979, we have been creating community associations and the documents governing them. Marshal Granor, Esq., was one of the principal authors of the Pennsylvania Uniform Planned Community Act, and has taught the topic extensively across the state to fellow attorneys, homebuilders, title insurers and real estate agents. Marshal drafts community association documents for Granor Price Homes as well as for fellow developers, builders and commercial users throughout Pennsylvania.
Community Association law is a specialized area of practice, bringing together the practical issues in effectively running an association’s day-to-day affairs, regulatory issues to obtain and maintain an association’s maximum financing opportunities, and keeping within the strict requirements of the statutes.
Marshal has been admitted to the College of Community Association Attorneys, as one of fewer than 150 lawyers across the country to achieve this honor. CCAL membership recognizes its members as having distinguished themselves through contributions to the evolution and practice of community association law. CCAL members are also recognized for committing themselves to high standards of professional and ethical conduct.
Marshal is involved in revamping and upgrading community association documents, correcting errors or allowing changed circumstances to be addressed so a community can be completed and move forward.
To solve difficulties in obtaining FHA and FNMA project approvals, Marshal has pioneered the process to terminate a condominium and replace it with a Planned Community Association.
Special emphasis is given to creative and effective problem-solving to reach the developer’s or community’s goals quickly and affordably. We can refer proudly to a number of community associations whose documents had to be restated and amended with 100% affirmative agreement by the owners. A rare result, but one required by the law in some cases.
