Q. I am the President of self managed condo association.  We have a total of 6 units, two of which are rented out by the owners.  One of the non-resident owners has not left an address with us and is now behind 5 months total in assessments.

Q: We recently discovered that our condominium association bank account was carrying a negative balance. After doing some research on the account it was discovered that the board President withdrew all the funds on the account for personal use.

Q: There are two trees in front of our building. They are on the easement between the building and the road. The Board is looking to remove the trees. How should the Board proceed?

Q: Our management company didn't pay the water bill (Chicago), and the new management company has asked us to pay that bill ($70,000). It's about $700 per unit. First they promised to conduct an investigation as to why the previous management company didn't pay, but now it looks like they did not investigate and are simply asking us to pay. What can we do in this situation? We paid our association fees on time.
