-Levitt & Slafkes provide insight on Condominium Association Liens-
Maplewood, NJ -- Bruce H. Levitt, Managing Partner and Shelley B. Slafkes, Partner,Levitt & Slafkes, P.C, were recently published by Thomson Reuter’s Westlaw Journal. Their article, CONDOMINIUM ASSOCIATION LIENS: STATUTORY, CONSENSUAL OR BOTH?, focused on a common scenario.
In their piece, they explore the use of Chapter 13 bankruptcy to help owners of condominium units eliminate liens assessed by condominium associations. They explore legal decisions from around the country to make the argument that the law allows those liens to be removed. The article was based, in part, on a legal argument that Bruce Levitt and Shelley Slafkes were the first to raise in the New Jersey bankruptcy courts. That case has been cited by courts in New Jersey and other parts of the country that have addressed the issue.
