I am sorry for this dilemma...however, there is no way for myself, or anyone (other than the members of your board) to answer the questionWhy are the titleholders paying for a third party vendor to do the job that's part of the Board of Directors dutiesAre you asking if this is legal?If not, can you tell me what is your question please?
ThanksIt is...that is, assuming your bylaws (bylaws are the rules that the board of directors must follow...you can can see them by contacting the property management company and requesting a copy) do not prohibit this? The board is free to "farm this out"In fact, while not typical (I agree with you, most boards form a subcommittee to do this work) the law does NOT require this. For good reason. In most cases board members serve without compensation. It would be a stretch to have a law requiring a board to use their volunteer time to do this work.Now...if you believe this is unfair, and enough of your fellow owners agree, you can ask the board to change the bylaws (to prohibit the board from farming this out)...and if they refuse you can run for office (be a board member) and use that status to change the bylaws.
But the board is free to take this action (again, assuming your bylaws do not prohibit it)Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
