The most prevalent and fastest growing form of residential ownership in Texas and the rest of the nation is in common interest developments, a designation that is most commonly characterized as single-family subdivisions, planned unit and mixed-use developments, condominiums, and townhome communities.
The increase in popularity of these planned community lifestyles in the past several decades has led to a developing and evolving body of law addressing their creation and the organization of entities governing them. Property owners associations (POAs) are empowered by statute and their governing documents to impose high standards of community living. The quality of POA creation and governance is greatly enhanced by the guidance and professional contribution of an experienced and competent legal representative.
Rosemary B. Jackson has maintained a devoted practice as consultant and legal representative to POAs and real estate developers since 1982 in creating common interest developments and establishing and serving as general counsel to hundreds of condominium and property owners associations throughout the state of Texas. Additionally, she has served as an advocate and expert in the Texas Legislature concerning POA and condominium issues.
For many years, Attorney Jackson has served as a Commentary Author for O’Connor’s Property Code Plus. She is a frequent presenter of articles and webcasts regarding property owners and condominium associations for the State Bar of Texas and other professional organizations, and is rated AV Preeminent* by the Martindale-Hubbell peer review rating process.
