During the meeting I asked to view the document or have it added to the package we are getting (minutes, Budget P/L, income). The CAM deferred to the officers and the President declined stating I had to make a records request. I asked for the info on every property of the financial receipts of homeowner assessments by address as well as some documentation on which properties were being taken to collections. I was provided on the 9th day an appoint time on the 10th day to come and view the records but only shown a subset.
I made another request for the information and additional documentation and received notice that the estimate to get the documentation would be 8 hours chargeable @ $20 and must be paid prior to viewing. I intend to use SB580 and will not be demanding copies. Is this legalThe Assc has processed and collected via a collections agency, fees from some owners while not attempting the same from all owners. As I am bringing this information to their attention I am earning special attention on violations inspections, Architectural apps and even communications. Several letters I receive from the CAM state, based on board decision, but there are not any documented minutes or meetings. Frequently the directors meet in numbers less than quorum in the street publicly. Many owners have been subjected to the added expenses but the directors themselves are not and recently they sent out a letter, that they have on an agenda to ratify later, granting clemency to debt incurred by late fees and interest for some owners based on date. I am concerned they are creating a liability for the community for litigation that could prove costly to all home owners should some debtor want to reverse fees paid that others have had forgiven, is that possible?
