HelloThis is Samuel. So to be clear, you attend the open meetings and you are not disruptive and present your position at these meetings? And now you are getting violation notices? What do they say you are in violation of? Things at your house? What? Are they legitimate violations? Do other neighbors have any violations?
Thank you. Let me review this response and I will reply here shortly. Thanks for your patience.
Thanks. So here is the thing, it is only harassment if there is continued annoying behavior without JUST reason. And if you are getting emails from the board about property violations then they are not going to be considered harassing, unless of course there are really no violations and the board is merely picking on you.
If you are the only one being cited for possible violations, then you can bring the matter to court. And you can sue them for discrimination. If you have violations then you need to try to clean them up and then the Board has nothing to come at you with.
If you have been lied to, then I suggest you try to work it out with the manager. Try to resolve this even though you don't want to play nice. Someone has to make that first move. Otherwise, it will be continue problems.
Well, you can certainly apply for a restraining order. But as I said, if there is just or what appears to be "just" cause for the emails and continued communication, I suggest, it is unlikely you would be afforded one by the court.
The only other thing you can do, when the time comes, is run against this board member or support someone else to run against him for that board spot.
You're welcome. Please let me know here if you have other questions or need clarification. Otherwise a Positive rating ensures I get credit for my time.
