My neighbor rents out her condo and her tenant stored a dog in his garage. The garage wall is shared with my living quarters. A fowl odor is coming into my home. He has since removed the dog. My home still have the fowl odor and the garage has not been properly cleaned. The HOA is not following the declarations which states they have to send notices and fine the owner if they fail to clean up the damages. The condo association property manager sent me a letter on behalf of the board telling me to file a claim with my insurance company. My insurance company adjuster said she need to see visible damage. Can I file an insurance claim against the Board for not following the declarations of our community association in resolving resident issues? Do I have to hire an attorney or file in small claims against the owner or the board? How can I make the owner clean up her side including her drywall, shared wall and the damages to my property? Everyone keeps referring me back to my HOA and they are not doing anything to help.

We have a special assistant to the treasure going and "collecting" dues the day after from other Condo Association Members. She is demanding payment and intimidates older owners into paying. Is it discrimination, the board won't tell her to stop.

I live in an HOA in Clermont, Florida and we have a clubhouse and a pool area, tennis area and such. The clubhouse has been up for at least four years. Recently the local fire department came in and did an inspection and they now say that all doors within the clubhouse have to be shut at all times. Most all of the doors in the clubhouse have glass windows in them. My question is, is this correct, do these doors within the clubhouse have to be shut at all times?

Can a condo association in California tow your car for not having a parking permit? The condo association's rules and regulations do not mention that a parking permit is required. It also states that open spaces are for guest only. A sign at the entrance of my street states public parking is prohibited. If I am a tenant, would I be considered "Public"? The towing company that towed me is also not listed under towing information. Please advise.
I recently purchased a condo in Florida and the seller disclosed a pending lawsuit. I requested all information/documentation concerning the lawsuit and was told by his real estate agent the lawsuit was finalized and there was a $300.00 assessment that he would pay. After I closed I learned at the 1st HOA meeting the judgment was for $600,000 and each owner may be assessed 6K but the BOD decided to file bankruptcy and appeal the decision. Also, I was not made aware of a MOA or MOA dues but found out at the meeting MOA dues were suspended/stopped during the lawsuit but BOD are discussing reinstating them at $200.00 per month. Should I seek legal action against seller, seller's real estate agent, my real estate agent?
I am the board president of a condominium association in NYC. In the past I've been asked to supply the most recent Annual meeting minutes and the most recent Board minutes to potential buyers. That makes sense to me and I'm happy to do it. Today a lawyer for a potential buyer has asked for all the minutes I've got going back over the years. I feel the most recent minutes give the most current information and anything more could just get confusing. All of the Annual minutes are available to all, however, Board minutes are often full of private and sensitive information about Owners that the Board needs to deal with discretely for all Owners' protection. If Owners ask to see Board minutes I happily hand them over but they understand that there may be some redactions of sensitive information. What is common practice when it comes to handing over Annual and Board minutes to potential buyers and/or their lawyers?

Does a “Full Service” property management co & individual mgr., have a fiduciary duty/obligation to the HOA to provide guidance & not allow the management’s personal to undertake work that is only a benefit to a few owners which would otherwise cost them money? Like upgrading individual “deeded” garages that only benefits some owners? One rule states – "no apartment owner or occupant shall give instructions to, or use for his own benefit the time of employees hired for the maintenance and services of the building or grounds". The Manager to the benefit of some owners, spent months of time getting bids and supervising the work. A little vague is the term “employees”, but still must also include the manager?
Is there a HOA law or regulation to prevent unattended young children from running or riding tricycle on street in the development? If none, how could we prevent this to avoid accident?
