Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.
Two legal concepts that may be applicable to your situation are those of waiver and selective enforcement of covenants and rules. Your condo association has rules, of course, that your unit-owners, shareholders and other residents must follow. Selective enforcement means that you cannot selectively enforce a rule against one resident and ignore the same violation by another resident, or the enforcement is invalid. If a board ignores a rule violation that is open and obvious for a significant amount of time, then you have "waived" the right to enforce the rule against that unit owner and, by extension, against anyone in the community.
I highly doubt that the Association will give you a "break" on the association fee. The Association cannot selective enforce assessment fees for one unit over other units. This may subject the Association to this claim from the other unit owners.
