My Massachusetts Condo Association has a dangerous snow issue blocking several condo units. The units are ground-floor/semi-garden, with sunken living room and all else on the first floor, and have snow almost to the top of every window (some from snow blowing, some from natural occurrence and drifting.
Is this a fire safety issue, since the only means of egress is the main exit door, which has 8-foot snow banks blocking patio?
Regarding removal of the snow, the Board suggested paying the snow removal team extra money to shovel out our condensers, which are all individually owned. I’m guessing payment for snow removal around individual condo units is not out of the realm of their thinking. Further, there is nothing stated in our documents that addresses this issue.
Should the issue of snow removal be dealt with by the Board and paid from condominium funds, since there are 12 condo units facing the same situation?
