Hi! Mr. Esquire.
One year ago Emilia contacted a reverse mortgage company representative because she wants to get benefit from their services. The company told her that she can not applied for that benefit because her condominium association did not renew that license, and all individuals that live in that place are losing that privilege. At that time, she spoke several times to her condo association representatives, and they answered to her that the building do not qualified any more because they do not have funds for paying that license. As I explained to you before Emilia bought that property long time ago, and she always has paid her association maintenance fees, mortgage and taxes without problem. Time is passing, and until today the condo association have ignored all her questions and they have not paid for that license violating the rights of all senior citizens that like Emilia wants to obtain the benefits that plan provide to elder citizens.
My legal question is:
What institution Emilia have to contact whom represent her violated senior citizen rights?
What legal steps she needs to take that make her condo association be in compliance and pay for that license?
Your advice is really appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your prompt attention to this matter.
Sincerely, Rosa

Rosa,
Thank you for your reply. However, this does not answer my information request, which was:
Can you please tell me specifically what insurance document the building management/owner lacks? This is very important. It depends on exactly what kind of insurance document (or, requirement) we are talking about here. Can you please be more specific? Thank you.
Without this information, I cannot fully answer your question.
Thanks in advance.
