Association wins at Colorado Court of Appeals | HindmanSanchez

Association wins at Colorado Court of Appeals | HindmanSanchez | What's Trending in HOAs? | Scoop.it

HindmanSanchez felt that the District Court ruling was absolutely incorrect and that such a ruling would have devastating results for community associations in Colorado so it worked on behalf of the association for over 18 months to confirm the association’s right to foreclose.
