The bylaws and house rules normally require board and management consent for such work. This is standard and normally approved, but the association wants to make sure the plans are sound and the work wont cause damage to other apartments.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
