Hoarders in condo association potentially creating fire hazard

Posted on Wed, Aug 22, 2012 @ 09:09 AM

We are a condo complex of 86 buildings; four units each, two townhouses, one terrace and one ranch in New York State. We have a well run board and a great management company. We have two hoarders and neighbors in those units are fearful of fire. The fire marshal has access to the garages, but owners will not let him into their condo. Our attorneys say this is a probable "mental health issue". I note that the condo law in NY City does allow them entrance into high rise units for safety reasons. What can we do to gain access to these units for the safety of all. I would appreciate your suggestions.
