Today, more than 2,025,000 North Carolinians live in some form of common interest community — that’s about 53% of the owner-occupied households in our state. Given the prevalence and continued growth of these communities, NC practitioners should be familiar with the laws that govern them.
Common Interest Communities in North Carolina continues to be the comprehensive and authoritative treatise on planned communities, townhomes and condominiums. In addition to the historical overview and NC case law summaries, this second edition also includes the following essential content:
- Recent developments in case law, statutes and regulations affecting planned communities and condominiums (including federal, state and local)
- New sections on encroachment agreements, easements, land condominiums, subdivision performance bonds, houseboat communities and architectural control committee bonds
- Additional treatment of the allocation of deductible, liability issues related to landscaping and sports teams, fair housing, wild animals, rivers and streams, setbacks, and golf courses
- Decisions from NC appellate cases affecting construction defects and standing, pre-litigation voting and procedural requirements, and assessments, collections, and attorneys’ fees
- Sample bylaws and governing documents from real communities across the state
