I live in a condo in Queens and we've been very unhappy with our board and management company. The unit owners have been trying to remove the board president for over 20 years but to no avail. We were told by the Management company that the Board president is a life-time appointment and that we cannot vote her off. We suspected that the management company along with the board have been fleecing the unit owners for many years. Every time a new board member got elected, he/she either only looks out for his/her own interest, or that he/she gets kicked out of the board by one lame excuse or another by the board president. With a large assessment fee looming, we wanted to hire a lawyer and recall the entire board. We do have a 'replacement' board member selection picked out. What's the procedure ? I have a petition written up and over 50% of the unit owners have signed the petition to recall the entire board. Is that enough ? What's the next step ?Join the Conversation Comments (4)
