Yes they can because it can affect the other owners as well and their ability to sell. That's because condo developments with a large investor concentration may not be eligible for financing. Alienating potential buyers can bring down property values and impede the efforts of others to sell, and when it comes to shared ownership like a condo, it's about the greater good.
