Q: One of our owners is threatening to sue the board for negligence because the common areas need maintenance that hasn't been done. We are doing our best as volunteer board members but because owners don't want to increase assessments and we have a lot of delinquencies, we just don't have the money to do everything we want to do. Can the owner sue the board members?

Q: One of our owners would like her husband to serve on the board, but he is not on the deed.  If she gives him power of attorney, can he serve on the board of our association?

Q: Only one of the owners in our building will agree to serve on the board.  What happens if we don’t have enough board members to serve? Does management of the association get turned over to the State?

Q: Our building needs substantial repairs to common elements including the roof, deck, and walkway, estimated to be around $400K. What criteria would we have to meet to qualify for governmental /state assistance?
