We are in FL. We have 2 associations, a Master and a Sub for each of 5 different communities. This is dealing with the Masters, even though there is overlap.These deal with the Masters.
Exposure of Items the Board did not want publicly known may be the reason:The Masters has worked to fix the vote, for example Proxy Hoarding, sending out a proxy which allows the current Secretary and up for election current member of the board cash votes for any proxies. FL code may not allow a proxy except for quorum. The board this year also change the cable provider and received a $240,000 rebate to do so. They forgot to mention this to the community, the rebate until exposed. They gave $50K plus to a consultant, and after being discovered put the remainder in a board controlled slush fund. There are other episodes, which have been tactfully exposed by a few owners, each of us targeted by the board via management on Petty items. I have had enough of this and I looking for a legal way to address these issues. I will discuss the last 2 attacks. There were others, with apologies from management, but only with push back. The last enjoyed no apology, just a suggestion it was "Meritless".Actions to SEND A MESSAGE:I have attached 20150118_RitaHouseKeepingAgreement. No issue on that. The issue is that after 3 years, she walked into the Clubhouse and was told they were going to tow her 2015 Jeep for parking illegally. That was found not to be illegal, and in fact the parking area for my building since 2006 when my building was built. There were no others who live in my building and park in the same area ever threatened that I am aware of. I have attached a series of emails which resulted in a reversal of the decision. We ended our agreement with Rita due to this. Rita had also helped at dozens of activities at the Clubhouse for free. We did not move Rita, but terminated our agreement with her. We own multiple homes, and thus we are not in FL but about half the time. For our mail, housekeeping, security, and other reasons we opted to have Rita involved rather than a 3rd party company employed to check our unit. For the record, one board member who was negative on Rita owns such a maintenance
company, and happens to also be the In-laws of the President of the Board who took this action. There was no economical loss beyond the level of convenience of having Rita help. There are others who have house assistance in our Community. None of those were ever pursued on any accord. Please note the attachment 20130830 Parking Question was on the same lot that they warned Rita they would tow.The last is Covered in the attached KieranVisit.pdf. I have not talked to any of my tenants, and do not think such is wise. If they were to leave, then I could be considered contributory to their decision. I found out through many other Residents asking me questions, or making other comments. At this time no lease has been lost. I have not seen it in print, but it appears the Board Member who made the comments Resigned. The issue is he resigned from the Masters, and he is still the President of the Sub Association in which I live. (Not going to detail, but such things as leaving the dead bushes across from a unit I own for 2 years, sending a letter about a six inch clay pot out of place, putting a tow notice on a visitor to a Tenant of mine when they arrived late early the next morning when they were called prior, stopping access of a tenant on a renewal of a lease due to one word who had been there for over 6 years, and calling out tenants in a discriminatory way in meetings. Apologies on all from management when addressed, but the damage on all was done. The Message was sent loud and clear. A waste of scores of hours of my time. Great insult to my tenants, 2 of whom are 30 plus year Secret Service, NCIS, Navy, and Marine background, serving for 3 and 5 presidential guards in their time at the SS. I am assuming they are targeting me, but I do not know.I am looking for anyway to pursue this in a legal matter. I own 4 units in the community, which creates some jealousy I assume. These are 250K to 300K each. As they are on the board they ask for a huge amount of info on owners. Thus they know all were bought for Cash. They are rented to individuals as I mention prior, but there are a few board members who HATE renters, and those who own rental units.The Management and I have an ongoing issue of providing them Tenant Social Security numbers when they have no privacy policies. This is a different item, and separate, but again an area where any push back is dealt with on nuisance
