Q. When must the secretary provide the unit owners with the minutes from the most recent meeting?
Can the Board install security cameras to protect against vandalism, or is this a violation of privacy?
Q. I am on the Board of my association. The president and myself have been the subject of vandalism over and over again for the last two years. This is internal. Someone who owns a unit here is doing this and on the advice of the police, we installed security cameras without first informing the association. The President paid for this out of her own pocket for now, but if the cameras stay for building security, then she would like to be reimbursed. A unit owner noticed the cameras the other day and is crying "invasion of privacy", unlawful use of association monies, etc. Could you please advise us?
Q. I am a first-time condo owner and have found out the hard way that the gutted/rehabbed building has extremely POOR insulation between floors. It is so bad that I am able to hear conversations and people snoring. What can be done? The bulding does NOT YET have an association. Is it the unit owner's responsibility to compensate for this? It is unbearable and I am considering replacing the hardwood floors or putting in carpeting. I would greatly appreciate your advice.
