A tree on County property in NC has roots which have damaged a structure on the HOA common ground. We want the County to remove the tree as we cannot repair the structure with the tree in play. Who should remove the tree?
Our condo association board thinks they have the right to make all decisions such as hiring ofmanagement company and hiring service providers, yet they do not understand they have a fiduciary obligation to owners and that owners are the ones to vote for a new management company.
We live in a condo building in North Carolina with 35 units. One condo owner did a radon test and it was found to be slightly higher than the limit considered safe. No high radon reading has been found in the common areas. Whose responsibility is it to remediate the unit - the owner's or the HOA's?
Our HOA is not shy about applying a lien and then foreclosing on a condo for failing to pay assessments. What we find difficult to collect are the one time late fees of $20. Currently we are considering a revision to our Collection Policy adding more teeth or sting for anyone not paying the fee.
I'm part of the Board of a Homeowners Association. We would like to know what are the regulations in North Carolina for re-election of the board. Can we request secret ballots?

I am a member of a North Carolina Condo Association. Can the Condo Association require that a condo unit owner put the name of the Association on personal property insurance (as with a mortgage company)?
This is not in the Declarations or Bylaws, and our Board of Directors has a tendency to make up rules as they see fit, without taking a vote from the condo owners. We provide to them a copy of our insurance policy, but they do not have a right to that money anyway.
If I am responsible for damage, then my insurance will cover it. I don’t feel the Condo Association has any right to the money in the same way a mortgage company would. Am I wrong?
For the second time this year, a member of our HOA Board has submitted expenses for items that were contrary to responsibilities for the HOA. For the first expenditure, the Board admonished the member and included an explanation of why. For the second expenditure, the member will be asked, with the approval of the other Board members, to return the monies to the HOA.
Based on my four-year history on the Board with this member, they will undoubtedly refuse to return the monies. A motion will then be entertained to excuse the person from office, without cause (our Bylaws permit this), for the remainder of their term, which is at the end of this month.
I have reviewed Robert’s Rules and have not found an answer to this question. How can we prevent this person from nominating themselves at the election next month and not allow them on the ballot for at least one year?
