I would like to know how a condo owner in California like myself can obtain other owners/ investors contact info. Doesn't the HOA and Property Management have these records and if so what are the laws pertaining to openly allowing this info to other owners/investors. I believe our HOA President has this info but isn't willing to divulge this. PLease help.

Does anyone know condo law in California? We wanted to charge a fee to any owner who rents out his unit but someone has said this is illegal in California. Some of our units are rented to university students. This increases the water use, for one thing, because they have their friends over to take showers and do laundry. They also break the parking, noise and pool use rules which puts a burden on the board to enforce the rules. Any help would be appreciated. I can't find a citation regarding this law. I know several condos do charge fees. Does anyone have any experience with this?

I live in a 32 unit bldg; it is 30 years old. Due to termites, all the common area surfaces were replaced, including decks, railings, etc; the siding was replaced with Hardee board type material. After the work was finished, we were "special assessed" about $30K. I would like to know if I can claim it on my taxes - either state and/or federal. And if so, how do I do it? I live in California.

We live in a 5 unit Townhome property with two units in the front, and three in the back. A common driveway to all the garages separate the front and back buildings. Recently a number of families have started to use the driveway as a play area for their young children. They set up safety cones to warn incoming divers that their kids are at play. They supervise them. So far, no problems. There are two concerns. First is safety. It now becomes incumbent on the incoming drivers to avoid the kids. Drivers must wait until the aria is clear before opening their garage doors and proceeding. Second, with cement and stucco on all sides creating a echo chamber, the otherwise normal sound of kids playing is magnified. Closing windows does not help. I work out of my home sometimes find it unprofessional to be on the phone with clients. Do owners have the right to use a common driveway as a playground for their kids?
