Unit Owner Bad Behavior – When Fines are Ignored

A condominium association in the Milwaukee area was owed more than $2,000 in fines by one unit owner. For more than a year, the unit owner had been fined numerous times due to the same violations of the bylaws which the unit owner refused to correct.  While the unit owner paid assessments monthly, the unit owner ignored the fines and the association’s attempts to demand that the unit owner correct the violations.

The association turned to us and was able to get the unit owner to correct the violations and pay the $2,600 in fines and legal fees.

Lesson: Don’t give up. Associations are not powerless.  With the right attorneys, even problematic unit owner behavior can be curtailed.

A collection attorney who specializes in condominium law can assist your association in developing an enforceable collection policy, including a fining schedule, to ensure your association can pursue all remedies allowed the association under the governing documents and state law.
