Could a board of a Co-op Housing Association refuse to

Could a board of a Co-op Housing Association refuse to change/or add my son's name on the ownership shareholder certificate because I have a judgement? I want to highlight the fact that I just paid off the mortgage on it and got the release paperwork fromthe lender, and I don't owe anything to the Co-op as I have always paid my monthly fees. Does the board have the power to alert the private party who obtain a judgement against me and oppose the transfer of the ownership?

The building my condo is in was shoddily constructed,

The building my condo is in was shoddily constructed, causing leaks from my balcony into the apt below. At first we assumed it was a faulty HVAC system, but later realized the balcony was a possibility. Especially because the HVAC unit was turned off while the lproblems continued. The board hired engineers to assess the warranty of the balcony (the found out they were not well build either). During the first probe the engineers removed two tiles in a prominent location, that is very exposed to the elements (my balcony has a large area covered by the balcony above). Leaks got worse and happened more frequently. My apt became moldy, the floors started popping up. The board was aware, especially in lieu of the fact that one of the board member lives in the apt that gets water damaged water coming from my apt. The tiles created by the tiles were never covered (when I ask someone came to cover the area with a plastic sheet, which did not stay in place). Month later (1:~Sept '15, 2: ~May '16) the board had the engineers come back a few more times. I spoke to a board member about the tiles and leaks before going away for the summer. About 4 - 6 more tiles were removed in different areas (some covered, some not) while I was on vacation. None of them were covered. My floor popped up so much that the HVAC in one room is hovering a few (5-6") above the wooden floor). Other areas of my floor look water damaged. Can the board be held responsible, since it did not take proper action, in lieu of the fact that each owner is usually responsible to paid for damage done inside their apt (condo)? Thank you!

Folks, I need a Community Association lawyer to respond to

Folks,I need a Community Association lawyer to respond to this query.While attending the September HOA meeting at the board President's home, I observed that he had recently taken over and redeveloped the Common Maintenance Area (CMA) behind his house. When I challenged him on this, he simply replied that it was his property and that the ARC chairman signed off on the changes. When I pointed out that this was not permitted, and a very serious violation of our CC&Rs, he and other attending board members seemed little concerned.This board consistently fails to document unfavorable comments in the meeting minutes and we are still awaiting release of minutes back to the May meeting. Also, board meetings are only held bi-monthly, so the next occurs in November. I view this CMA violation as egregious and cannot see how it can be exposed in a timely manner without distributing a flyer.I would like to send you a copy of the proposed flyer, along with a copy of our CC&Rs so you can verify the provisions I referenced therein. In general, I would like to know; 1) the legality of my proposed action, 2) the possible legal consequences, and 3) the appropriateness of the flyer content? I have kept the information factual and, I believe, provided reasonable commentary without personal invective.Please let me know if you can accommodate my request, and the approximate cost. Thanks very much for your help.Regards,Mark CusanoEmail:***@******.***
