In the December 2012 edition of Habitat Magazine, Ronald L. Perl, Esq., the partner-in-charge of Hill Wallack LLP’s Community Associations Group, authored an the article entitled “Protect Yourself! The Four Things Every Vendor Contract MUST include.”

The article advises that community association and co-op boards should never enter into contracts without review by their attorneys. Mr. Perl states: “Attorneys are trained to anticipate problems and provide protection for various situations and are more likely to spot potential pitfalls. A co-op board or condo board should never approve a contractor’s contract without attorney review, and managers should not simply use form contracts for vendor work.”
