Condominiums at Lilac Lane Unit Owners Assn. v. Monument Garden, LLCAnnotate this Case
Plaintiff Condominiums at Lilac Lane Unit Owners’ Association (Lilac) appealed a superior court order granting summary judgment to defendants Monument Garden, LLC (Monument Garden) and Eastern Bank. The trial court determined that a residential development in Dover known as the Condominiums at Lilac Lane was not subject to the provisions of the Condominium Act RSA chapter 356-B (2009 & Supp. 2016), regulating “convertible land.” The New Hampshire Supreme Court agreed with defendants that the plain language of the Act contravenes Lilac’s assertion that “convertible land” and “expandable condominium” were the only means by which units may be built in the future after the condominium was created. As such, the Court affirmed the superior court’s order.
