Dear Mister Condo,
I just received an email from the condo association saying all unit owners have to provide the name of the bank and the mortgage number back to them. Isn’t my mortgage number personal info? Do I have to give it to them?
Mister Condo replies:
B.S., your mortgage loan number is not personal information that you can withhold from the Board. In fact, the mortgage holder of your unit may actually have to be notified of certain decisions the association makes and in order for the association to communicate with them they need to have their information including your loan number. That being said, information like loan numbers can be sensitive and your association should not be careless with the information they collect on unit owners and lenders. Yes, you have to provide the information. If they abuse the information is such a way that you can show damages, you may have a case to sue them but that is highly unlikely, in my opinion. Good luck!
