Florida homeowner association: florida homeowner association fight banks - OrlandoSentinel.com: Jan Bergemann, president of the Cyber Citizens for Justice association watchdog group, said this week that law firms should not represent both groups.
"That should be a conflict of interest,'' Bergemann said. "Banks normally like to postpone as long as possible the moment they are the deeded owner. The homeowner association, meanwhile, has an interest to foreclose as soon as possible.'
Conflicts of interest are determined on a case by case basis. That said, law firms that play both sides of the street are making some denizens of Privatopia uncomfortable.
