Q. We have an absent owner who no longer lives in the building but has rented out his unit.  We have been after him for several months to get his stuff cleaned up from the storage area that is common space and put into his assigned area of 4' x 6'. He has ignored all requests.

Q. We have an ongoing dispute in our condominium association. Can a board member's spouse (who is on the deed) vote for that absent board member?

Q. My husband and I love our current condo but with a growing family need some additional space. We live in a six unit condo building where all six units are identical (each have 2 bedrooms and 2 baths). We are interested in purchasing the unit next door from an owner who currently rents and recombining the two units into one 3 bedroom/3 bath and one 1 bedroom/1 bath.

Q. My condo building turned over from the developer in 2007, all gut rehabs. We have eight residential units and two commercial spaces. The current condo board president owns one of the commercial units and recently purchased the second commercial unit and a residential unit. He told the other owners at the last board meeting that his wish is to eventually buy everyone out and rent out the units.
