Can association remove handicap ramp eyesore?


Owner had a wheelchair ramp built to her unit owner supposedly requested approval from the property manager who never informed the board. Owner has passed away ramp is an eyesore is not being maintained by daughter who now rents unit and tenants do not seem to need this ramp. Propwerty manager got a legal opinion that says we cannot force the daughter to take it down and the association should maintain it to prevent injury and possible insurance claim as it is partially on common area. Property manager tells the board that the association can remove the ramp which the board has voted to do. I wonder could the association can bill the daughter for the demolition and repair of common area. Massachusetts
