The board president IS the property manager (unpaid). We do not have enough time to vote him out without all the cash being dispersed.
The repairs are barely started and have been barely started for almost a year.
We need to know what to do to halt an.y spending by the current board, how to replace the entire board due to misuse of position.
Additionally, the president and accountant ( who work as a team against the rest of the owners) hold 28 out of 300 votes and we have very poor voter turn out
Hi again.In order to replace the board, there must be a vote with the majority agreeing to remove the board. In order to have the vote, you can call a special meeting if you have 5% or more of the owners agreeing. So, you should first get 5% or more demanding a meeting for the purpose of voting on whether to remove the board. Once you have 5% or more, then the meeting must take place for the purpose of voting. If the board refuses to allow a special meeting because they do not want to get removed, then you can file a complaint with the Attorney General of California, who can enforce the law.
You can review the majority of the laws here: http://oag.ca.gov/consumers/general/homeowner_assnI hope that helps.
Surely there is an emergency way to halt activities of a board who is shirking its fiduciary responsibilities.
I know about the vote process, I've read my HOA CCRs and Rules and Regs. I need advice that I can't get on Yahoo or the other public boards about stopping them tomorrow, not in two months.
There we go! Do all 4 items need to be met or will a minimum of one condition let us get to an injunction?
