I own a unit in condo building that has 19 units. Our board consists of three members, two of which are mother and son and both together own 9 units in the building. Time proved that such board is difficult to vote out and difficult to deal with as the attitude of possessing almost half of the building created bully effect on other owners. The board started sending notices of recycle violation and possible monetary penalties to be imposed on owners for their tenants contaminating trash bins. Not to mention 9 units the two members own are rental and their tenants are often making damage to the "cleanliness" of the common elements.
Since they sent me a notice about my tenant throwing wrong items to recycle bins I informed my tenant to pay extra attention to what is being put there; still the notice is perceived by me as a personal attack as those issues persist over time. I requested a prove of incident so I can find it legitimate and especially address this to my tenant for the future; board claims they do not need to send any proof, but penalties might occur. How do I determine that it is a real incident not the act of personal vendetta.
