In district court of appeal Pudlit 2 Joint Venture, LLP v.

Customer Question

In district court of appeal Pudlit 2 Joint Venture, LLP v. Westwood Gardens Homeowners Association, the court determined that the new owner of the property is not liable for old owner''s past association fees due, if in the declaration of covenant states so.
I need an attorney who can fight the association in the same situation. In their declaration it clearly states it's only previous owner's responsibility, but they have been refusing to start account for the new owner and they demanded the old owner's due to be paid by new owners. Please let me know if you can file the suit on contingency basis, since they association side will absolutely lose and I don't have retainers to pay upfront.
