I know this is a sensitive issue, but we have a homeless man living on the street, in an alcove of our building. He has a sign saying that he is trying to raise money to go home. We offered to take him to the Port authority and buy him a bus ticket -- but he refused.
He has yelled obsenities, but so far that is all. We have learned that he lived on another street and may have broken car windows... We are trying to find out more..
Does anyone have any advice or information?
Any experience with facade conservation easement tax deductions for your building? If so, which organization did you donate to and did it work out well for everybody, in terms of the IRS accepting these charitable donations?
A question: what is the policy in regard to con ed bills?
Up until 2 years ago utilities were a part of maintenance charges. So it was a non issue. Now we have been submetered. Do we have to absorb his families electric charges? I am a new board member and I noticed $4000 arears for his apartment.
Two questions please...
what is the average amount of money in reserve for a coop with 300 apartments.
Also, is it usual to have a mortgage that balloons after 7 years. This is a second mortgage to pay for improvements that was not covered in the reserve.
