I own a office condominium in Charlottesville, VA. Recently,

I own a office condominium in Charlottesville, VA. Recently, the Condo Association asked if they could determine whether or not a plumbing leak was coming from my particular unit. After inspecting my unit, which included opening up walls to look for the leak, the contractor saw that I still had Qest plumbing pipe in the walls. The leak was in the slab, not within my unit, so it wasn't my responsibility. He recommended having the Qest removed/replaced since the Sheetrock was already exposed. I said "sure," go ahead...no estimate or quote was offered, but they went ahead a replaced all the Qest, repaired the Sheetrock, and painted. Several weeks went by, and I receive a $3,700 bill for all this work. What, if any of this, is my responsibility?

I have rented a 6th floor Condo since 2004. I moved to the location as it was advertised as an "un-obstructed view of Tampa Bay". over the years, an ugly pine has grown up and almost completely blocked my view. I've tried to work with the HOA, going as far as pay to have it trimmed or removed at my expense. Do I have any legal leg to stand on ?Thanks in advance,MIKE

I am starting the 4th month of a 2yr lease in a New York

I am starting the 4th month of a 2yr lease in a New York City apartment I leased with a private owner through a broker. I agreed to pay the first 3 months and the last 3 months of rent in advance. September 1 is the start of the 4th month but I have been unable to contact the owner through email or through the real estate broker regarding where to send the rent check. I am concerned that the owner may be in default and wonder#1 what is my status as a tenant if the mortgage lender takes back the property?#2 To whom if anyone should I be sending a rent check (no address is specified in the rental agreement)?#3 At what point would I be at risk for paying a $500 monthy late fee?#4 what will be the status of the final last 3 months of rent I paid in advance if the lender does indeed reposess the property?

I recently purchased a condo in Volusia county florida. It

I recently purchased a condo in Volusia county florida. It is a brand new association, I believe 49 units with the developer still owning at least 20 units. Two developers and another owner who owns 6 units placed themselves on the board. We were notified of a meeting two weeks in advance and sent a proxy for a vote approximately 10 days in advance. I am curious if the BOD can require an assessment of $2400 by October 1st, for a pool that they do not have a contract or contractor and they are not certain of the cost or if the pool can actually be completed. I understand that I would have my money returned if unable to complete but there is nothing in writing. I am not comfortable handing over $2400 when the project is simply being talked about with no documentation to back it up. Is this something that a BOD can demand? This is what was sent to me.......Dolphin CoveCommunity Announcement:Special Assessment/2017 BudgetGreetings from Dolphin Cove. The Board of Directors passed the 2016 Special assessment to build a pool in the community. Although the plans and contract are not finalized, the BOD approved $2,400 per unit to be paid on or before October 1, 2016.*Note - There is a chance a phase II Special Assessment for additional funds may be needed to complete the project.Please send all payments for the Association dues to the address below:Dolphin Cove Condominiumc/o JNE ManagementPO Box 161617Miami, FL###-##-####
