Wilhite & Associates is a boutique law firm representing owners and management companies of professionally managed multi-family housing properties. Wilhite and Associates represents properties across all ranges of the market including conventional, HUD, Rural Development, Low Income Housing Tax Credit, Section 8 and Public Housing Authorities. The firm is daily “in the trenches” with apartment communities. Representing the industry is not just a part-time side business. Even if for an individual in the industry, the firm doesn’t also do other work like divorces, criminal defense, or Wills.
There are complex sets of laws which uniquely affect the multi-family housing industry including statutes, regulations and cases, ranging from landlord-tenant laws to property to Fair Housing. With such a large volume of units represented and the large volume of industry cases over the years, issues tend to repeat themselves, whether contract issues, apparent emergencies or what to one property might appear to be an infrequent claim. One management company might only deal with a particular legal situation infrequently that the firm handles frequently. While the firm also enjoys confronting new twists and challenges, Wilhite and Associates’ clients benefit from their long-standing industry-specific knowledge and experience.
