What is the name of your state? Illinois.
19 unit condo building. 19 different owners. 7 rental tenants.
18 wonderful lawabiding owners/ 6 wonderful lawabiding tenants.
1 rogue owner lost his job last year. Decided to rent out unit for astronomical amount. Refused to follow Associations Bylaws in rental policies. Put in first people who applied. Within first month approx $1,000 damage to back hallway due to these people. Noise level cannot be believed. Basically you can be a block away and hear them scream at each other all hours of day and night. Their television provides background noise for entire neighborhood. The smell of pot is suspiciously present. Since tenants are usually parked in thier parking spot the owner will park in someone elses when he comes over for whatever reason. We have peppered owner with bills for damages for a year now. He ignores them. Association keeps running fines of all violations that tenants or owner rack up. Owner has moved several times and does not like to give his address or phone number to Association. Association sent Owner a letter advising him that as of March 1 he is no longer allowed to rent unit as his negligence has resulted in serious damage to several other units and common areas. He has chosen to ignore this. In Association meetings owner sceams at all present. Thats right he screams. He also jumps up and down. He is rather illiterate so you can just envision that picture. He has his sights set on one of the board members. Tries to single her out and catch her alone.
We did speak to a lawyer. Were advised we can go to court and place lein against mortgage and that it takes quite a while. We were also advised that Illinois no longer places orders of protection. Does anyone have any legal ideas that may be more expedient ? We'd all like to take our earplugs out and have our hallways repainted soon!
