Fayetteville attorney Lee Mason’s very unique service to homeowner associations and neighborhoods consistently earns statewide recognition through his company Community Association Management. Mason specializes in real estate law and community association law. Developers, homeowners associations, and individuals turn to Mason for his expertise in this specialty niche of the law.
Mason also offers complete management services to homeowners and condominium associations. His management company, Community Association Management, LLC (CAM) is ranked year after year in the Atlanta Business Chronicle Book of Lists as one of Georgia’s top community association management companies.
Through CAM, Mason is able to greatly simplify the operations of neighborhood associations by combining legal and managerial services into one setting. Usually, associations must hire a management company for day-to-day operations and an attorney for any legal issues that might arise. Mason’s clients receive managerial services along with the advice and counsel of an experienced real estate and community association attorney.
Combining management and legal services is a unique concept. With Mason, communities receive both services for one set fee. That fee won’t increase for five years. It’s what sets us apart in this industry, Mason says.
“CAM handles all of the finances for associations, including paying vendors, collecting association dues and reconciling the association’s bank accounts each month,” Mason says. “Our company also drives through neighborhoods to check for covenant violations. Going to court to enforce covenant restrictions and collecting outstanding homeowner association dues is a routine practice for us.”
Mason notes that having a strong homeowners association with quality management and legal services protects investments for all homeowners and helps to ensure that property values increase rather than decrease over time.
