California e-mail petition for special meeting has everyone confused!

During this email era, what is the proper way to submit a legal petition to the board requesting a special meeting - they have sent just a email with owner names on it and the unit number and reason - don't we have to have petition member sign or "email" the petition? Anyone can type in names in an email. Who do they present it to at the condominium and how long does the board have to act upon it? The first time they did this they presented it at a board meeting this troublesome group had an email from each owner but this time they just typed in owner names on an email It seems to me there is a legal proper way to do this otherwise the board and resident managers to be inundated with quarrelsome owners constantly. We are now asking our attorney but still waiting on answer - even they have a problem recognizing what is proper!

Hoarders are making life miserable for their neighbor in Palo Alto, CA

I'm in a 45 unit condo complex. My neighbors, with whom we share a common wall, have been storing rotting garbage on their patio for the past 13 months.

They are hoarders, and currently are breaking no less than 8 rules in the CC&R's. Their garage is packed with garbage also, and their entire property is infested with rats, which has spilled over to our property.

By-laws state association should repair foundation

I am a homeowner of a Condominium Community in Baltimore, Maryland. My home has experienced a water leakage problem, but this year the new manager refused to repair it. She said the foundation repair is not the responsibility of the association, but the association’s by-law assigns the structural repair to the Association. My question is 1). Does the foundation wall belong to structural part? 2) Is the foundation repair the association's responsibility based on by-laws?

Association has unfair condo fee structure in place

I live in a 90-units townhouse condo association. The units were built in the 80's in three phases. As part of the condo bylaws, they structured the fees in such a way that phase III residents pay more than phase I and II residents. This is how the system works nowadays even though phase III has the most compact foot print and least number of units and landscaped areas. The law that was crafted 30 years ago requires 100% to alter the fee structure. Obviously, most of the early phase residents are so addicted to the quasi subsidy system that they do not want to see any change. We, therefore, continue to shoulder most of the responsibilities and get the least benefit in return. How do you see it from legal point of view?

Condo association may be assigning monthly fees incorrectly

I am considering running for the board of my Florida condo corporation but am concerned with how the board is charging units monthly fees. The declaration states that 1 bedroom units should pay 3.2% and 2 bedroom units 5.9%. The board has been using a formula that results in 1 bedroom units paying 4.3% and 2 bedroom units 4.7% for the past few years. I suspect this issue will become a problem in the next few months. Can you give me an idea of what to do? Thank you.
