My upstairs neighbor , who is on the Board , flooded my unit , resulting in my electricity going out permanently . Also my sink leaks . The CC & Rs stipulate that the HOA is responsible for " plumbing " . Instead of paying , they threatened me with fines if I tried to collect . They made good on their threat and have fined me for several rules I have not violated . Each month the fines are not paid , I incur 10% interest . Sometimes they convene and create new rules that would only pertain to me . They also block my doorway and throw trash in my parking space . Sometimes they call the sheriff to complain about noise , even though I'm either not making any noise or I'm not even home . I'm wondering if I should just pay for the plumbing issues and take it out of the dues I pay each month ?
The term property refers to things a person can own or possess. There are two types: real property (real estate) and personal property (everything else).
When you buy a condo, you own your individual unit, and all unit owners share joint ownership of the common areas, which are controlled by management.
