Thank you for your question.
"A condominium is supposed to run like a democracy with trustees being elected by the majority of unit owners, and subject to being voted out of office when they do a poor job. The procedures for elections and removal should be set forth in the condominium declaration of trust/by-laws. In the case of financial mismanagement, unit owners often may have difficulty enforcing the internal governance rules. At minimum, disgruntled unit owners should call a special meeting and attempt to removal or vote out trustees who are causing problems. If the internal governance doesn’t work, unit owners may seek legal action for “breach of fiduciary duty” against the trustees in the Superior Court. In egregious cases, the court can grant preliminary injunctions and other remedies to protect the unit owners from financial harm."
You can get a free consultation from some of the attorneys listed by location here. They all advertise as being knowledgable about Homeowners Association law.
Only a local attorney can provide legal advice but it sounds like you may need to at least threaten to sue the co-owners to get this mess cleaned up. Sometimes a demand letter from an attorney will get people to behave as they should.
Please follow up on this with a local attorney.
I hope this information is helpful.
