Q. I was falsely arrested by a non-compliant condo association.  Out of state tenants and falsely accused- property damage and stalking.   What can I do prior to the trial date set for January 20, 2011?

A.  My recommendation is that the individual speak with an attorney.  As for the condo concerns, if the board acted maliciously within the scope of their duties as board members, the individual may have a cause of action against the board.  Generally, though, his criminal issues will be tried separately.

"Ask the Expert"

Can an association charge a separate fee to owners who rent out their units?

Q. We have a number of owners who are renting out their units in our small condo building.  The board has decided to charge a separate monthly fee to owners who rent.  Is this allowable?

A buyer wants to add a washer/dryer to the unit. Can the board prevent this?

Q. An owner is selling her unit and a prospective buyer has asked if she can vent the existing dryer through the wall, and if a washer/dryer can be installed into the existing pantry.
