Dear Mister Condo,
Mister Condo replies:
J.B., condemnation does not prevent common fees from being charged and collected. Condemnation simply means the building has been deemed unsafe and uninhabitable. The building and the association are still incurring other expenses that are part of the maintenance fees and all unit owners are still beholden to their covenants to pay those fees. I know it seems to fly in the face of reason that maintenance fees are collected on a condemned property but unless the association is dissolved (unlikely), the common fees continue to accrue and the association is entitled to collect. I hope they get the building repaired or rebuilt in timely fashion for you and other unit owners. Good luck!
