Condo owner ignoring bylaws and taking in renters

I live in a four unit condo in Massachusetts. In our bylaws, it states that we are not allowed to have anyone move in with us; specifically, we can't rent a room. A few months back, we met to discuss a change in this to state that it was ok to rent a room with the approval of the renters by the other trustees.

Bylaws do not allow owner to sue condo association

I was fined by my association $1,500. I refused to pay the fine and was taken to court. The judge ruled in my favor the fine was improperly assessed but I paid $1,610 in legal fees. I was not awarded fees as the judge asked where in the bylaws it said I was allowed to sue for fees. The association is allowed to sue for fees but the tenants are not and I was denied. I assume there is a code or law which I could cite to file my motion to reconsider.

Condo association has no rules and no one cares

What would be the next step when the Condo Board does not listen to anything about your unit, when the sound of the elevator is heard, and people stomping up and down stairs.  My condo unit, (one wall), is right against these, and when my husband and I bought our unit we were told that it is sound proof?  Also next to our door is a pedway, where all the units have access.  We hear people accessing it.....as some of the steps are made of steel.  Also there is an office on the main floor, and we were told that they wouldn't have access to the pedway, (which is attached to a parkaide) and our building.  So the office employees stomp up and down the stairs Monday to Friday,  past our door, to access the pedway, after we were told by the builder, another gentlemen who owned the unit over us, (we think he had helped finance the building of this place), and our real estate agent.    I've sent countless e-mails to the condo board, which fell on deaf ears.

Too many people occupying HOA unit

Our documents state that no more than three people per unit. We have a two bedroom condo. Recently we have discovered that there is a unit with four people living in it. The condos are not build to handle four people. The second bedroom is not big enough to hold large bedroom furniture. Its only good if the kids stay over for the weekend. Not permanent housing. Since I'm on the board I have asked our management company to sent notice to this unit that our documents state only three people can occupy the unit. The management company tells me that federal and state statutes says that four people can occupy a unit. They said we can send a letter but if they protest, we have no case. Who is right, Our documents that were drafted by the contractor and his lawyers or the state?
