I own a condo, in Virginia, and live there full time. I emailed the property manager about 2 weeks ago, asking to arrange with the trash pickup service to reschedule their visits (their early morning visits 3-4 times/week create a serious noise disturbance to sleeping residents). The trash pickup service told me they do accommodate their customers on request, but they needed to discuss this directly with the association (property manager) and not me. After I forwarded this advice to the property manager, via email, I received a letter from the condo's lawyer that the association might sue me. The letter from the lawyer seemed intended to scare me, since it didn't actually say I was breaking any laws or doing anything wrong. But I’m not sure exactly what it is they want me to do or not do, since the language is surprisingly vague. My question is, does this constitute harrasment on the association's part? And doesn't the property manager have an obligation to assist me in this matter, rather than respond by threatening to sue me? In the past the prop manager has advised me, regarding this problem, to “move”. Is it "OK" for a lawyer to "bully" a property owner, under these circumstances?
