Adams Stirling PLC


Growing Industry. Commercial and industrial common interest developments are a significant and growing segment of the industry. So much so, that in 2014 the legislature carved them out of the Davis-Stirling Act and created a separate body of law called the “Commercial & Industrial Common Interest Development Act.” 

New Clients. Our Firm represents a large number of commercial and industrial common interest developments as well as mixed-use associations throughout California. We welcome new clients.

Legal Services


Amendments. Changes in the Commercial CID Act and case law require commercial and industrial associations to amend their CC&Rs and Bylaws periodically to remain consistent. Some amendments are done to correct deficiencies created by the developer.

Restatements. Over time, too many separate amendments can become confusing. This is the time to create a single clean up-to-date document. Restatement frequency depends on the quality of the existing documents and the pace of legal change. A restatement every 10-20 years is common.
