I am a member of an Illinois Condo Association with 227 condo units. Pursuant to the ICPA, all records need to be kept in at the main condo association property management office.
If the condo association hires a property management company, would the main office be considered the office on the grounds of the condo association, or the main office of the property management company?

I am a member of an Illinois Condo Association, and have a question regarding Board meeting minutes.
If the minutes from a preceding Board meeting are tabled because they were not ready, what should be the protocol? When should they get read and/or approved?

I am part of an Illinois condo association. Our condo association Rules and Regulations were updated earlier in 2014. I moved into my condo unit 27 years ago and received a welcome packet at that time, but have never received a copy of the Rules and Regulations and/or CC&R.
Shouldn’t these have been provided? What am I supposed to compare the updated version to?

I live in a condo in NYS. In reading our governing docs I don't find an answer to this question and am wondering if anyone can help. We have residents (owners and renters) who have been given copies of rules which they have signed noting their understanding, etc. Perhaps times have changed - more than ever before we have a number of newer residents in our condos who don't adhere to the condo association rules. They pay their fines which until now have been nominal at best. We have recently voted to increase fines in hopes that it will call attention to the seriousness of the problem. Other than fines and the withholding of pool passes, is there anything else that can be done to make badly behaved, disrespectful residents feel a consequence for their actions? It seems that condos have no bite when it comes to this problem. Conversations have not helped. I keep thinking if just once we could do something to enforce our rules in a way that might cause the resident a hint of discomfort or embarrassment it might help to stop some of these behaviors that are so aggravating and frustrating to the other residents. Thanks for your help.

I am a condo association board member and just found out from an angry co-owner that he had to pay $125 to the property management company in order to get a status letter to sell his unit. I agree with seller that this a rip off considering what little work is entailed to put together this letter. Can we as a board require the management company to produce this info at no cost to owners in good standing? Isn't this info ours to begin with?

I am the President of my HOA and have recently joined the Board for our Master Association. The other association under the Master represents the condos. There are three members from the condos who have been on the Board for over ten years and two years from the HOA on the Board so I am always out voted.
After reading the Master Association documents, it appears this Board does not comply with the covenants and the way the Master Association was set up under them. They have an agreement from 2003 scribbled on a piece of paper that previous Board members signed delegating MA common area maintenance to my HOA, which they are trying to force me to carry out. Now they plan to file this with the county clerk as an amendment.
Under the docs, all amendments have to be voted on by the full membership. I can't tell how long it has been since an annual meeting has been held. I've lived here 5 years and never has one been carried out. Under this agreement my HOA is paying more per unit than the condos. Is there any recourse when the Board erroneously picks what they want to enforce from the docs and blatantly go against other articles?

I am a board member of a 60 unit condo. The Declaration was filed in 1985. It states that a unit cannot be sold without notification of the board and the Association has the first right of refusal. A unit sale has taken place without this rule being followed. The board found out after the closing. I was told someone at the management company told the seller it was ok to sell. Does the management company have this power? I do not find this in paper work I have. Does the association have any recourse, since the closing was completed. It was bought by a financial group to be rented or leased. We have good association and few vacancies. I could not find this looking at the archives. Thanks
