    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.
