I live in Florida and our current property manager feels that taping notices to our mailboxes is proper notification. I understand recently our board of directors voted in an increase in our association fees but no one has receive any kind of written or verbal notification of when the new fees go into effect. How much notification is required on a fee increase and how do I get management to notify me in writing? I'm mobility handicapped and don't go to my mailbox every day. Also, in that new increase the office received a $1,200 allowance per month for copying and postage. Plus, this is our rainy season and most notices taped to the mailbox get destroyed.

The association took me to court for condo fees from about three years ago that they say I owe. The court decision was for me to pay the association $1,475.00. I appealed the court decision and said I want it to go in front of a jury. The guy that is treasurer has a site on the internet where he keeps track of my condo fees. He has been sending me links to this site since he started it. I went into the site after we went to court the first time and he has made an invoice number for the court decision that I appealed and he is adding 3% late fees every month to the court decision. Then I checked the individual invoices for this court case and he is also adding 3% late fees to each of these invoices which would total 6% interest per invoice per month. He also recently sent me an email telling me if I don't pay the court judgment he will sue me for personal damages. I also have multiple copies of each invoice he claims I owe that were copied on di fferent dates and at one point each of these invoices was paid in full. I even have emails he sent me with the invoice numbers stating that they are paid in full. Does anyone know if this is legal? Can he legally add late fees to a court decision that I appealed? Can he really sue me for personal damages because I appealed the court decision?
In North Carolina, our dues are due the first day of the month, late on the 1st day of the next month. Our Board is telling the homeowners there is a North Carolina law that states we can not collect late fees until the first day of the next month. Is that true? I recently purchased another condo in a different HOA and they start assessing late fees after the 15 of the month. Please advise, thank you.
A new property management company took over July 1, 2010 and has insisted I owe an additional months worth of dues ($210); They started out my account with a balance of $210 instead of $0 as I paid July 2010 dues on 6/15/2010. I have provided proof several times through email as well as snail mail to the property manager, board of directors and the last letter to their attorney as well. I have offered to send copies of cleared checks or any other proof they need to remove this extra charge (I have paid my dues every month on time since I bought my condo 8 years ago). They are refusing to discuss this with me and are now starting the collections process. How do I get this resolved?

Our condo regime fees are based on the square footage of our individual units. And there's only 24 condo units. Our budget reflected an increase of 25.99%. The management company said it was only 5% and they would send me their figures. Now I find out the 5% increase is per unit!! This doesn't make any sense to me. Our by-laws state up to 10% without a vote but I believe that should be on the total budget amount not each unit. I think the management co. is wrong. My first condo so I would like to know is this way standard?
