Q. We are trying to set up some best practices now that a new Board is in place.  How long should association records be kept?  Financial statements, tax returns, correspondence, meeting minutes, etc.?

Q.  I am a first-time condo owner and have found out the hard way that the gutted/rehabbed building has extremely POOR insulation between floors. It is so bad that I am able to hear conversations and people snoring. What can be done? The bulding does NOT YET have an association. Is it the unit owner's responsibility to compensate for this? It is unbearable and I am considering replacing the hardwood floors or putting in carpeting.   I would greatly appreciate your advice.

Q. I have heard rumors that condo owners will have to put up 6 months of monthly assessments coming in Jan 2010, any truth to this rumor?

Q.  There is an owner/resident in my condo  building that has verbally abused our manager, maintenance staff as well as residents for months.  The police were called recently and said there was nothing they could do. What can we do ?
