Would just appreciate a basic response - i.e. you have a valid argument in objecting to the payment/you are wasting your time in trying to argue this case. Many thanks.
I'm sorry you've been waiting so long for an answer. If the majority of the trustees voted for the special levy, then you really don't have a leg to stand on. You should read you original contract over carefully. Odds are that there is a part concerned specifically with special levies. Usually what it says is that you pay them. Period. All owners must pay if the units are to be kept in proper repair.
I'm sorry if that isn't the answer you are trying to get, but it is the general rule and probably you will find it in the small print of your owner's documents.
All the best,
