At Hyatt & Stubblefield, P.C., we work to maximize developmental flexibility, minimize liability for the developer and the association, and enhance marketability of our client's communities through cutting edge legal documentation and innovative approaches to community governance and sustainability.


Innovative Systems for Sustaining Social Infrastructure


One of the challenges of developing legacy communities has always been how to sustain the programming that attracted homebuyers after the developer is gone.  Hyatt & Stubblefield, P.C. assists developers in establishing community stewardship organizations and tax-exempt entities such as trusts and foundations with dedicated funding mechanisms to address social, cultural, charitable, educational, and environmental programs that not only attract homebuyers initially, but enhance and sustain the community throughout the development period and beyond.


A Balanced Approach to Community Governance


Our approach to community governance has changed the face of community associations by moving from the command-and-control mentality of the past to the creation of a "community" in the real sense of the word.  Today's home buyers are not just concerned with how their communities look, but also how they live.  Our innovative governance structures and documentation are designed to promote resident interaction and participation in an atmosphere of reasonable regulation while protecting the developer's vision and interests, using such mechanisms as:

  • Owner participation on the association board and on committees during the development period
  • A defined process for transition of association control from the developer to the owners
  • A rulemaking process that provides flexibility to adapt to changing conditions while protecting the owners' interests

A Focus on "Community"


At Hyatt & Stubblefield, P.C., our experience in dealing with property owners and associations in hundreds of communities gives us a unique understanding of the challenges of self-governance and living in a harmony with one's neighbors while seeking to enhance and preserve the community-wide standards that maintain property values and attract new residents.  Our governance documents recognize and provide mechanisms for associations to address these challenges through such things as:

  • Leadership training
  • Resident education
  • Codes of conduct for directors and officers
  • Management standards
  • Nominating and election processes
  • Alternative dispute resolution procedures
  • An "Owners' Bill of Rights"

Consumers have grown accustomed to a fast-paced, high tech, and service-oriented society and they expect no less from the communities in which they live.  Hyatt & Stubblefield, P.C. continually strives to improve the structures and systems that enable developers and the communities they create to establish and sustain not only the homes, businesses, and amenities that attract buyers but the social infrastructure that enhances their property values and creates a true sense of "community."
