What is remedy when controlling vote is owned by one couple in our 3 unit association and they do not vote in best interest of the condo assoc?

Asked by rmhoffman22, Saint Pete Beach, FL Wed Aug 22, 2012

Our HOA consists of only 2 couples and they outvote us in every decision because they own 2 of the 3 units. What can we do when they vote in unreasonable or unfair manner? ie., they installed new clear windows but will only approve us installing frosted because they want their privacy!

At the heart of your question is a matter of fairness and law. As a broker it appears you are in an unfair situation, where one family has unreasonable control of the association. Regarding the law, you should take this up with a local attorney. Not the issue of the windows, that's only a symptom, but the way the association is set up where this one couple has unreasonable control.
A real estate attorney can review your association agreement and advise you whether it's legal or not and how best to proceed to bring it into a more fair arrangement. Sorry I can't be more helpful than that.
