[Read more…] about What can be done about libelous, false and derogatory comments posted on a Closed Group Facebook page about our community by residents and former residents? Examples: homeowner claims that their closings were delayed or halted due to litigation within the community when clearly not true.False accusations of theft when audits prove that is clearly not true. We have had Facebook remove two closed group pages due to violation of their community standards and unfit content, but this other page is even worse.
[Read more…] about We recently updated our community’s rules and regulations regarding ARB approvals. In those changes, the buffer a resident installed to a propane tank was deemed to be in violation. The original buffer confirmed to the existing regulations and was approved by the ARB when installed, but the ARB was controlled by the builder at the time. Is the current board under any obligation to honor the prior documented approval?
QUESTION: My building has a common room that is used daily by people playing cards, mah jongg, etc., and I do believe people who don’t live in the building participate in some of these games. We recently allowed a resident to have a meeting in the room as well. Afterward, another resident requested use of the room for a meeting that would possibly have a few people who don’t live in the building. They asked for an application. I denied this person’s request to use the room, and informed the individual that the association attorney was in the process of writing rules for the room’s use, and the board did not want residents using it for meetings about issues the board does not approve of. Prior to this, for a few years, this individual’s wife was on a committee, and a few weeks after this incident, the board president met with her to tell her that her committee was no longer needed and was being eliminated. That same week, the board president organized a group to do the same activity the individual’s wife’s committee was doing. The couple has sent us a formal letter stating they feel singled-out by the board, and discriminated against. Do we have an issue?

[Read more…] about One resident constantly complains about another resident who is in violation of a HOA rule. As a board we are aware of the violation but allow the situation because of the personal situation involved. We have communicated to the complaining resident we do not wish to discuss why we allow this violation. Do we have to provide an answer?
[Read more…] about We were given permission to a owner’s unit checking for a leak problem we had. When we were in there maintenance noticed they had three cats instead of the two allowed. Several of the board members want to send the owner a notice to get rid of one of the cats. Can we do that since we were only in there for something else?
