Directors serving on boards of neighborhood associations in Nebraska are often surprised at the number and variety of legal issues they face as a volunteer board member of a homeowners association, such as:

  • Covenants must be enforced against homeowners fairly.
  • Town home and condominium owners associations must collect dues and assessments from property owners to ensure sufficient cash flow to meet the association’s obligations.
  • Vendors must be lined up to care for lawns, landscaping, snow removal, trash removal, and exterior maintenance.
  • Association books must be maintained and audited.
  • Regulatory reporting laws governing nonprofits must be adhered to.
  • Corporate formalities must be followed.
