Deed Restriction Enforcement
We have fought hard to assist communities in aggressively enforcing restrictive covenants and have achieved many successful verdicts in contested matters. Recently, Hoover Slovacek represented a homeowners association against owners who were building a house contrary to the submitted architectural plans. Although the parties agreed on a settlement early in the case, the owners later tried to disavow the agreement. After a two-day trial, the court upheld the settlement agreement against the owners and awarded the Association injunctive relief and attorney fees of approximately $100,000. The trial court’s judgment was later affirmed on appeal for the association.
Golf Course Legislation
Subdivision golf courses in the Houston area have long been targeted for commercial redevelopment by very aggressive commercial developers. During the 2011 Legislative Session, Hoover Slovacek worked with legislative leaders and Texas Community Association Advocates in passing legislation to protect subdivision golf course communities from this type of detrimental redevelopment.
