Managing Disruptive Residents in Your Condominium Association

Pin It

Living in a co-op, condo, or HOA often involves dealing with disruptive residents who create problems ranging from noise disturbances to more serious conflicts. Industry professionals note two main types of troublemakers: those who inadvertently break rules and those who deliberately disregard them, with the latter often proving more challenging. The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated tensions, as more people stayed home, leading to increased complaints and stress for board members and management.

Addressing these issues requires a mix of legal action and empathetic management, recognizing that some behaviors might stem from mental health issues. Legal remedies can include fines and, in extreme cases, eviction, but often the best approach involves patient communication and reasonable solutions, with an emphasis on fair treatment and adherence to community standards.
