Q: There are two trees in front of our building. They are on the easement between the building and the road. The Board is looking to remove the trees. How should the Board proceed?

Q: Our management company didn't pay the water bill (Chicago), and the new management company has asked us to pay that bill ($70,000). It's about $700 per unit. First they promised to conduct an investigation as to why the previous management company didn't pay, but now it looks like they did not investigate and are simply asking us to pay. What can we do in this situation? We paid our association fees on time.

Q: We are having a hard time finding owner volunteers to serve on the board. Can someone who is not a member of the association be contracted to serve as a condo board member?

Q. There is a tree on the side of our condo building that may need to be removed. Owners believe the tree is causing the drain outside of the building to clog, potentially the cause of flooding in the ground units.
