come talk about “Controversial decisions: to allow leasing or not"






Some associations grapple with the decision to ban rentals. Others grapple with the opposite decision--to allow rentals. The lawyers say this requires a vote by the whole ownership to amend the governing documents. How are associations making these decisions? When deciding to restrict or abolish leasing, are associations using majority rule to suppress the minority of non-resident owners and investors? How do the latter tend to react to the move to restrict leasing? What does experience show is the safest, most democratic and most productive way to decide on this issue?

    Although I am a big believer of the concept of community, Associations are a random collection of individuals that may have little in common and are often dominated by those who seek power and control, often for the wrong reasons and there is little in the way of accountability. Mediation is not available and lawsuits expensive and not the best way to go.
