I have seen comments in my search here but still unclear on what I should be looking for in a Property Management company.
We are in a new building of 24 units that will soon turn over from the developers management to our own association.
If we choose to hire a professional management company, what should we expect to pay in New Jersey.
Our board decided that guests or outsiders from another community cannot participate or volunteer at events from another adult comunity.
Our board of trustees chose not to segregate the Rroofing reserve fund as a separate line item in the budgets approved by the trustees.
I live in a condo in NJ. After the last board election, the only info supplied to the homeowners was the names of the elected members.
If the abuse and harassment from an HOA causes someone to have a stroke, heart attack, or mental break down, can the HOA be liable?
My HOA is nothing but bullies. They have created an extremely hostile environment. They violate many bylaws, state laws, and federal laws - even simple things for which there is nothing in it for them - they do it because they can.
We tried voting them out. It didn't work. They made sure one of their gang took over, and got themselves back in office a few years later. They make sure they are not voted out if anyone tries to challenge them. The paid property manager and lawyer are just as unethical.
Assuming it can be medically documented that the abuse caused the medical problems and an ambulance chaser will take the case on contingency-could the HOA be liable?
These are old, cheap, non luxury condos. The only alternatives are worse (high crime areas, needing expensive renovations at the home owners expense, etc). Renting is even more expensive.
The illegal activity and bizarre actions can be well documented. In the latest incident, they initiated legal action over nothing. A unit owner had renovations done. As part of the renovations, hard wired smoke detectors were to be installed and connected to the unit's circuit box. Instead, the contractor tapped into the HOA system-insisting that is what code required.
