I am a condo owner in a Massachusetts Condo Association.
The Association is having difficulties with a secretive and controlling Board of Directors, as they are insular and regard challenges to their decisions as threatening and insulting. The condo owners are in no way rude or out of control, they are merely seeking information.
An attempt was made to have our Condo Association property manager intercede, but they are claiming that they work for the Board and not the condo owners. If this is true, who works or advocates for condo owners?
Advice would be appreciated!

I have three questions regarding Florida Condo Association committees.

I have an additional question regarding the 48-hour rule for posting of regular Board of Directors meetings in an Illinois Condo Association.
Does this rule also apply for special Condo Association Board meetings? Thanks.

My Condo Association in Mesquite, Nevada has a new rental ordinance that allows for short-term rentals. The ordinance states, ‘governing documents must specifically state that short-term rentals are allowed.’
Our Board of Directors wants to do this by resolution of the Board rather than an amendment to the CC&R, where rentals are currently mentioned but time frame is not specified.
Can the Board do this, or should all condo association members have the opportunity to vote on the Amendment?

Hello, I am a member of a thirty-two unit Florida Condo Association. Ten of the condo units are owned and rented out by one non-resident owner, and four other units are leased out by individual non-resident owners.
We must find a new President, Secretary, and Treasurer in the next few months. Because of the elderly ages of several other owners, the availability of the other candidates is almost non-existing. Can anyone suggest how to proceed?

In an Illinois Condo Association, what is the required notice for regular Board of Directors meetings? 10 days? 48 hours?
I have spent some time searching this, but have conflicting information from different documents. Thank you!
I am a condo unit owner in a Pennsylvania Condo Association, and would like to install a gas fireplace in my living room. The problem is that the condo unit is not set up for ventilation, so the fireplace would have to be ventless.
Other condo units in my association have the same layout and use ventless fireplaces. It is an open floor plan, with no separation between the living room, dining room, and kitchen.
Are ventless fireplaces even legal? What are the advantages, disadvantages, and precautions to be aware of when using them?

I am the newly appointed President of a Connecticut Co-op Association. One of our former Board of Directors members is requesting all of our financial information. My response was that, when I was just an owner and she was on the Board, I was told I did not have access to that information. She responded and cited substitute House Bill 6672, saying that access should be granted.
I’ve attempted to look this up, but don’t know how this applies to our 36 unit cooperative. Does anyone have any insight?
For the second time this year, a member of our HOA Board has submitted expenses for items that were contrary to responsibilities for the HOA. For the first expenditure, the Board admonished the member and included an explanation of why. For the second expenditure, the member will be asked, with the approval of the other Board members, to return the monies to the HOA.
Based on my four-year history on the Board with this member, they will undoubtedly refuse to return the monies. A motion will then be entertained to excuse the person from office, without cause (our Bylaws permit this), for the remainder of their term, which is at the end of this month.
I have reviewed Robert’s Rules and have not found an answer to this question. How can we prevent this person from nominating themselves at the election next month and not allow them on the ballot for at least one year?

For years, our condo association management company has sent along minutes from past meetings. I had recently said something they didn’t like, and now the property manager refuses to send the minutes along. Again, they are minutes from past meetings.
Is this a Freedom of Information (FOI) issue?
