Addressing noise on condo building roof

Posted by CondoAssociation.com on Wed, Sep 19, 2018 @ 07:03 AM
I bought condo on third floor. There is noise from air conditioning units right above my master bedroom. I contacted the condo association and they told me that's not their responsibility.  Owners should be responsible. Talked to owners, nothing happens. What are your recommendations?

Do we assess for new projects?

Posted by CondoAssociation.com on Tue, Sep 18, 2018 @ 08:36 AM
Our HOA recently completed its 2019 annual operating budget and included several "special projects" designed to enhance and improve the property. None of these projects includes repairs or replacements, but will improve the aesthetics of certain common areas, and the cost is not necessarily expensive enough to special assess. One homeowner says this procedure of adding these projects to the operating budget is illegal as any new projects must be billed to the owners via a special assessment. Where can I find this answer? We live in California.

Can rental units be declared an illegal business?

Posted by CondoAssociation.com on Thu, Sep 13, 2018 @ 08:57 AM
I am in a condo association with nine free-standing homes. We are trying to eliminate rentals less than six months, but four of the nine owners oppose it since they rent their homes almost all year and they believe resale value will fall if we limit rentals for future owners. Can we declare their rentals a business, thus violating the residential use only by-law, and, therefore make the change at the Board level without a majority of the owners approval?

Can we amend master deed to limit rental units?

Posted by CondoAssociation.com on Wed, Sep 12, 2018 @ 12:13 PM
We have a COA with 54 owners, 11 units are rented. The original master deed from 12 yrs ago says that any owner may rent, but the lease must be at least one year. We are concerned that more and more units will be rented over time, reducing the value of our units as we evolve to a de facto apartment building. Can we amend the master deed to cap rentals at some percentage, like 30%, with 2/3 vote of owners, or are we bound by the original master deed?

Tennessee state laws about dangerous dogs?

Posted by CondoAssociation.com on Mon, Sep 10, 2018 @ 08:27 AM
Anyone out there up to speed on Tennessee state laws concerning dangerous dogs? I've been informed that once a dog injures someone (which is the case in our condo complex), it is TN state law that a sign must be placed to warn visitors and residents--as in Beware of the Dog--until action can be taken. I need to know where to find the laws online, because the lawyer I've hired doesn't seem to recognize this law about placing a sign.
