If a parent purchases a condo apartment for an adult son or daughter, does that mean that the adult occupant of the apartment is the person who gets to vote in condo elections, rather than the purchaser? Our managing agent sometimes cc's the parent on messages about the condo and does not cc the occupant (though they usually do cc the occupant). As a board member, I've asked the occupant to clarify whether they want the parent to receive these messages, and they have not responded. (I'm considering reaching out directly to the parent regarding their understanding/ preference for receiving messages about the condo association.) I'm also unclear about whether the occupant is the person who should be voting in elections rather than the parent. The occupant has, in fact, been invited by management to attend the annual meetings and has voted in our annual elections. (To my knowledge, the parent has never requested to attend the annual meetings.) Any advice is welcome.Join the Conversation Comments (1)
