What to Do When Resident Violates Condo Rules and Regulations

Publication date:
November 22, 2021
Article Summary: 

This article discusses the steps a property manager or condo board can take when a resident violates condo rules and regulations. The violation of rules can include parking in unauthorized areas, noise disturbance, Airbnb (in some cases), and misplacing of garbage. The first step is to approach the resident in a low-impact way, but if that does not work, the next course of action is to issue an official warning letter, or Notice of Violation. The contents of the letter should include the right addressee and unit number, a detailed account of the violation, the specific provision in the rules and regulations that were violated, and a timeline for remedying the violation. The tone of the letter should remain professional and courteous. If the issue is not resolved, a second and even third letter can be sent, and the last letter may indicate legal action or referring the matter to a collections agency.
