Sorry for the delay, I will have to look over the bylaws and get back to you, the practice of people putting their houses up for sale and not paying their maintenance fees until the house has been sold is quite normal in this village. The New Manager agreed that the prior manager (with whom she worked as her secretary for over 10 years that I know of) made these agreements all the time, so it has been done in the past and my husband was with our friend at the time of this verbal agreement. The Board has now stopped this practice for everyone.
I will review the bylaws and occupancy agreement and get back to you. Thank you
