What is Trestle’s Condominium Practice?
Condominium communities require keen oversight of the maintenance and
financial condition of the Association.
Washington State condominium associations are unique as they are subject to one of several different common interest ownership acts and the legal requirements for attached communities vary greatly. Trestle’s Condominium Practice thoroughly understands each act and the requirements they place on communities and Homeowners.
Through our advanced understanding of condominiums, building structures and complex maintenance responsibilities, the Condominium Practice at Trestle excels at helping Boards manage their communities. The Team proactively advises Board of Directors and community volunteers on recurring and preventative maintenance, and ensures grounds remain well-maintained year-round. Trestle also meets all of the communities’ legal requirements while supporting and guiding Homeowners. The Practice contains advanced expertise areas to address needs such as large-scale remediation projects, special assessments and loans, and complex insurance claim matters.
