Condominiums

The Kandutsch Law Office recognizes that condominiums and other common interest communities present unique issues with regard to dealings with cable television and broadband providers. In particular, we recognize that owners’ associations, which must make crucial decisions affecting the property, are composed of people with careers and interests unrelated to the management of communications services in multi-family environments, and that condominium management companies are often at a disadvantage when negotiating agreements with cable and telecommunications lawyers. For that reason, we believe that historically cable and broadband companies have been able to and still do take advantage of common interest communities. Whenever a cable or broadband provider takes advantage of a common interest community, the value of the real estate asset is incrementally diminished.

While we recognize that most condominium management companies have real estate attorneys on retainer, we also believe that in some circumstances there is tangible value in consulting a specialist in communications law. Based on years of experience dealing with cable and broadband companies, the Kandutsch Law Office is able to efficiently focus on the crucial provisions of a cable or broadband access agreement, advise the community concerning its options, and ensure that the community gets a fair deal. We also have a proven track record of success in assisting condominium communities extricate themselves from dysfunctional carrier relationships, including long-term exclusive easements, and replacement of under-performing providers.

Whether you are a common interest community management company or an owners’ association board member, we urge you to contact our office to schedule a free consultation.
