Dear Mister Condo,
In our condo association, we must request to plant a tree in our limited common area. I have been turned down for several requests, plantings, small water fountain, yet I see other condo owners doing what I want to do. My question, am I allowed to see their requests, either denied or approved?
Mister Condo replies:
D.Z., requests made of the Board are records of the association and, as such, must be made available to any member of the association requesting to see them. Further, the Board should have taken action on these requests at Board meetings where Minutes were kept. You are also entitled to review the Minutes of any meeting of the Board. Keep in mind that there may be an administrative fee to review these records and that you may need to make an appointment to do so but it is your right to inspect these records. Good luck!
