As a board member of your homeowners association, you are bound by certain fiduciary duties. Holding to these duties, though, can sometimes be demanding. Even the littlest of blunders or acts of negligence can be seen by homeowners as an infringement of your fiduciary duty. When that happens, some homeowners might file a lawsuit against the association and specifically mention members of the board by name.
Litigation can get messy, and homeowners have sued their HOAs for much less in the past. Although state laws offer the board some protection against personal liability, no one can guarantee your victory. Even if you know you did nothing wrong, you still need a Winston-Salem, NC HOA attorney to represent the association and defend your case.
