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.

What are reverse mortgages and can a condo owner qualify?

Q. I keep hearing about reverse mortgages. Would my condo qualify for a reverse mortgage and what are the benefits?

Can a rent to own condo tenant serve as a board member?

Q. An owner in our building has a tenant who has a contract to purchase the unit on a "rent to own" basis. Since the tenant is not yet legally an owner, can she be responsible for voting on the board members or even serving on the board herself?
