"Ask the Expert"
Q: We have a problem with a homeowner who is feeding and giving shelter in our condo common areas to a colony of feral cats who are urinating, vomiting and defecating everywhere on our property and decks. We found an ordinance from Cook County saying she needs to be registered and to ask permission from owners.
Q. We currently live in a small Lincoln Park 2b/1ba unit. An architect and builder came to our unit to help us remodel our kitchen and they suggested we could bump out a wall about 2-3 sq feet. It would mean purchasing common space from the building. What legal/tax issues do we need to follow for ourselves, the building, and individual owners?
Q. Our condo is under a sales contract, pending loan approval for the buyer. However, the buyer is having issues getting financing because our owner occupancy rate is 48% or so. Since a majority of owners are now renting, it's going to be impossible to amend by-laws for leasing restrictions, since that requires a full vote.
