Dear Mister Condo,
How do we deal with a disruptive owner?
Mister Condo replies:
R.L., I am sorry that your association has a disruptive owner to deal with. The very nature of condominiums and HOAs mean that large groups of people often live in small places and need to share amenities such as parking, clubhouses, hallways, and more. It can be challenging experience when owners don’t play nice or get disruptive. Depending on the nature of this person’s disruptiveness, the association can enforce the rules of the association upon the disruptive owner in an attempt to get this person to play nice. However, if no rules are being broken or this person is just generally unpleasant to be around, the best advice I have is to steer clear. Some people are just unsociable or unruly. Why a person like this would choose to live in a generally close-knit community association is beyond me but if he isn’t breaking any rules, he has every right to be himself just as you and I do, too! Good luck!
