An incident occurred in my Condo building last weekend to which I received the complaint e-mail below. I have no knowledge of the situation but have been consistently accused over the past week by the doorman. I'm unsure how to even respond it's so ridiculous. I've never even met the person they describe in the notice below.
This will serve to advise you of a nuisance
Rules violation complaint registered against you on Saturday morning April 16th. Specifically, at approx. 3:20am a neighbor
complained about a person peering into their unit from their patio. In addition, the person was noticed on the balcony of other units above as well. Upon investigation, we now have a witness who saw you climbing the fence of their patio and even asking what you were doing? They indicate your answer was that you were locked out of your unit, and was climbing up the building to get in! The security officer on duty wrote an Incident Report.
As this appears to be an extreme violation of unit owner privacy and trespassing acts, the board of directors takes this allegation very seriously, and before taking any further action regarding discipline, please get back to us with your response, at your earliest convenience, but by no later than seven (7) days.
At such time the Board will determine any possible sanction, which ultimately gets confirmed at a regularly scheduled board meeting in executive session.
Regarding: Nuisance (II. Apartment
Rule A. i. “No unlawful, noxious or offensive activity or anything constituting a nuisance is to be carried out in any unit.”
Regarding: Trespassing (General Provisions)
Rule E. iii. “Loitering playing, entertaining or solicitation in the halls, vestibules, stairways, entranceways or other common elements is prohibited. Any activities that create a nuisance, disrupts the peace, or which may cause damage to any part of the Common Property, is prohibited.”
The Board has a right to enforce these Rules through the Illinois Condo Act and the Condo Declaration instruments.
This will serve as a fine implementation letter to be delivered to the Board of Directors along with whatever response you would like them to have before making a determination. The Board reserves the right to determine the fine amount, if any, (or other sanction) based on your action(s). Please understand, the unit owner is subject to any fine/discipline based on behavior exhibited.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
