My name is***** have over 16 years experience in the law. Should you like to chat on the phone I am happy to for a nominal cost. Let me know at any time during our question and answer session if you are interested I am happy to give you more details.

I want to make sure I understand...the HOA is using your electricity (your metered electricity) and you have no say over this?

And if so, is this something you have raised with the board? IF so what was their response?

Thank you. Tell me, what do the bylaws say about this? Have you reviewed the association bylaws to see if the permit this?
