Q. Our Association consists of eight units. Three owners are currently renting out their units.  An owner in a fourth unit is moving overseas and has not sold yet so her unit will inevitably end up as rental property.   Because of this, the Board is in the process of amending our Declarations and Bylaws to include leasing restrictions but we are facing fierce opposition from the owners that no longer live in the building.

Q. I just purchased a condo in a small association. I went to change the utilities and was told we have a tax id number. I called the IRS and they can't find it.

Q.  I recently had a water loss claim due to my upstairs neighbor--her w/d overflowed causing damage to my unit.  I went through my insurance, assuming they would subrogate.  I just received notice that they will not subrogate as the upstairs neighbors were not negligent. 

Q. A single back porch on each floor of our building leads to the back doors of three units.  It is unclear which part of the porch is assigned to each unit.  A dispute has arisen between two of the owners about the placement of a garbage can and grill on the porch.
