Common Charge Collections [10 Articles, 3 Videos]
I have a longstanding business relationship with Stephen Lasser, as I’ve been working closely with him since 2009 on a variety of legal matters through my board roles as the Vice President of a 170 unit, 12 acre condo complex and as the President of a 50 home, eight acre HOA both located in Fishkill, New York. Steve and his legal team were hired to clean up significant levels of arrears in both communities after previous attorneys failed to make any tangible progress across a high number of cases over years. I can tell you firsthand that Steve and his team were instrumental in reducing the condominium’s arrears from over $160,000 to under $20,000 in a few years! He achieved similar success at the HOA, having reduced arrears from a peak of over $42,000 to zero over a several year period… Steve has always been forthright in telling us if it does not make sense to commence with larger actions (such as foreclosure) and he has also utilized small claims processes very efficiently, where appropriate… Besides collections, Steve and his team have also processed numerous bylaw amendments, as well as serving as general counsel to the communities on a variety of other challenging items (i.e., emotional support animals, environmental issues, liability exposure, etc).
In summary, I have worked with Steve Lasser for over 14 years now. He is an outstanding attorney and I highly recommend you consider retaining his firm’s services. I am confident that his team would quickly become an asset to your community or business.

Steve and his team at LLG did an amazing job for our building in foreclosing on a delinquent owner that repeatedly refused to pay monthly common charges. Finally our small building is solvent again and making lots of great improvements, thanks to Steve and his team’s tireless work.
