Q. I'm condo president. One unit on the first floor is experiencing some water damage on her bathroom ceiling. The second floor above her had called a plumber to come out and look for a leak as well to fix.

Q. I have a question on deeded garage spaces and am not sure if I have a case. I own a 4-floor townhome and the first floor is the 2 car garage. One space of the garage is deeded to a condo owner in the complex. I do not know if this is true, however I heard that a garage needs to have 2 exit points in case the door breaks and you are inside.

Q. What are the advantages/disadvantages of having a condo owner occupied v income property? (I am using the term "income property" loosely, I know at least one person in our HOA is losing $300 per month by renting it out, but she lives out of state.)

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.
