Customer Question
What are my rights...

What are my rights to enforce a unit owners to pay a lease amount to the condo association for using the common area even though they have been encroaching for 10 years? We didn't want any disputes but now we are selling our unit. Will the new owner be able to make the unit owner cease and desease the land that's shared by common area ?

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

No nothing yet

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the condo located?

Louisiana

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Yes, can the unit owner proceed with a lawsuit regarding land contamination without the approval of the other unit owners?

I'm not quite sure what you're asking so if you could please elaborate I'd be happy to assist.

Are you asking if you can make another unit's owner pay something to the condo association b/c if you are that would be a right - to enforce or not - of the condo association itself.
