Answer to Mack's question.
This first started out as a simple dispute of past due common charges from past property manager.
I wrote a dispute to current property manger and he agreed with me and said $460.oo should be waived.
When he presented this to condo board they said they would only waive $248.00 and gave no reason for
their decision. The board is not directly involved in collecting fees and assessments and hva no direct involvement. After many letters back and forth. I got letter stating if I did not pay by Sept 30 the Board wanted me to turn over account to attorney. I relied on this because got no where with Board or property manger and felt attorney as an officer of the court he would inform board they had to waive total amount.
this amounts to theft But attorney did not contact me for 4 months fees and late charges keep growing
Attorney did not respond with customary demand letter befiore commencing lawsuit he commenced an
action in bankruptcy court (relief from stay but bankruptcy was discharged in 2008 this is 2011.
My feeling the property manger had the duty to the Board and all unit owners to contact attorney immediately after date passed and attorney should have acted within 30 days with demand letter before
commencing legal action not wait 4 months.
This should have been resolved in October 2010 without any legal action not with added charges.
