Question: I am a senior citizen and live in a condominium. The Board of Directors recommended that the balconies be repaired and then passed a special assessment. As I read the Bylaws, there should have been a special meeting called, so that the owners could discuss the need for repairing balconies, and then vote. Our Bylaws require that three-quarters of the unit owners vote in favor of any such special assessment. The manager and Board of Directors sent threatening letters to all owners who did not pay their special assessment, and now are threatening to take us to court. What can we do?
