- Collections: For over thirty years, Hoover Slovacek LLP has been an industry leader in providing efficient, cost-effective solutions for collection of unpaid maintenance assessments. Hoover Slovacek LLP has achieved high success rates of up to 98% for many Associations. Further, the Firm offers a range of flat fee schedules to keep its associations legal costs as low as possible, while still obtaining high collection rates.
- Deed Restriction Enforcement: Hoover Slovacek LLP has fought hard to assist communities to aggressively enforce restrictive covenants and has achieved many successful verdicts in contested matters. Recently, Hoover Slovacek LLP represented a homeowners association and filed suit on its behalf against owners who were building a house contrary to the submitted architectural plans. Although the parties agreed on a settlement early in the case at the temporary injunction phase, the owners later tried to disavow the agreement. After a two day trial, the court upheld the settlement agreement against the owners and awarded the Association injunctive relief and attorneys’ fees, both through trial and appeal, of approximately $100,000.00. The trial court’s judgment was later affirmed on appeal for the Association.
- Golf Course Legislation: Subdivision golf courses in the Houston area have been targeted for commercial redevelopment by very aggressive commercial developers. During the 2011 Legislative Session, Hoover Slovacek LLP worked with Senator Dan Patrick, Rep. Dwayne Bohac, and Texas Community Association Advocates, and was able to pass legislation to protect subdivision golf course communities from this type of detrimental redevelopment.
