[Read more…] about We have an owner who wants to review the Proxies several days before the annual meeting. The reason is that she doesn’t trust the Board members or the management company. Is this permissible?

[Read more…] about We always allowed residents some leeway with decorating their doors, especially with wreaths. Our rules say nothing is allowable outside resident units. A problem tenant has gone too far with an elf hanging from a noose. He says if he must remove the elf, everyone has to remove their wreaths. Is that true? Also can we remove the elf ourselves and hold it in the office until after the holidays?
[Read more…] about If there is a disagreement between the board and manager how to present a report, who is the report represented from? Meaning if the manager is uncomfortable are they obligated to present the report as the board directs (on behalf of the board) or may they insist the board present the report themselves?
[Read more…] about We have a bar in our clubhouse. It is unused, there is no bartender, no alcohol is sold. Several residents would like to start a bottle club. They would “stock” the bar with their alcohol and on weekends hire a bartender to serve their alcohol to their group. Any resident may “join” the club. The only requirement is to provide alcohol. However, some residents feel they should be entitled to “free” drinks since the club is using the bar and storing their alcohol in bar storage. Can this group residents act as an unofficial club? If the board designates this club as official, what are reasonable accommodations for all residents to participate?
[Read more…] about Some original owners were entitled to special parking privileges that were grandfathered in when later boards made adjustments to reduce the amount of spaces per unit. Do those privileges belong to the unit or the owners? One original owner is claiming the unit and says that privilege passes is along to the new owner.
[Read more…] about A resident’s chimney suffered damage from what they claim is excessive vibration from a county road project just outside our homeowner association. Other residents agree the vibration that day was excessive but suffered no damage even though their homes are of the same build and timeframe. The resident with damage has motivated fellow residents that our HOA should take action on all their behalf and test homes for possible damage. Should our association initiate a conversation with an attorney in regard to this matter and if so must we report a conversation took place (incase we decline to take action)?
