Dear Mister Condo,
I live in a condo managed by a professional management company. The grass is not being cut and the property is turning into a swamp. What are my rights?
Mister Condo replies:
J.M., the management company works for the association, governed by the Board of Directors or Trustees. If the management company is underperforming, it is incumbent upon the Board to pressure them to perform properly or be fired. If your Board isn’t doing their job, it is time for a new Board. Have you been attending Board meetings to hear what is going on? Have you complained directly to the Board about the poor property maintenance? You need to be vocal to have your issues heard. This isn’t an issue of your rights, this is a simple issue of property maintenance being performed as outlined in your governance documents and the management company agreement with the Board. All the best!
