I live in condominium. The Board of Directors hired a management company. New Board was elected during annual meeting and discovered that management company did not follow through their contract. Payments were not approved, contractors were paid without inspection and needs repair because defective. In what county can the Association sue the management company - in the county of condominium or management company.
Generally, the defendant's location determines what court and county. The management company will have a registered agent, and the county where the registered agent is located is always a proper county for suit. there may be a way to sue the management company elsewhere because they do business in the county. For example, a management company with a main office and registered agent in Fulton county might have an office in Fayette County. If your association was in Fayette County and you served an officer or agent of the management company in their Fayetteville office, you might be able to keep the case in Fayette.
Bottom line advice, if you are going to sue your management company, hire an attorney and let the attorney explore the options based on the facts of your case.
This answer is for general purposes only, and it does not create an attorney-client relationship.
