Dealing With Problem Residents & Objectionable Tenants - What Boards Can Do When Talking Fails
Presented by: Smith, Buss & Jacobs
Speakers: Kenneth Jacobs, Partner and Domenick Tammaro, Partner
2:30pm - 3:30pm, Room 1
Every association has one: the compulsive litigator, the bully, the hoarder, the smoker, the difficult roommate, the weekend worker, and the resident who disregards every house rule and seems impervious to every penalty. This seminar will offer tips on what a board can do: when to consider compassionate intervention versus more aggressive action, when to invoke the “objectionable conduct” clause, and other potential remedies. Panelists will discuss liability, the duty and limitations of the board, legal implications of 'objectionable' conduct, and what resources may exist that can help boards dealing with a problem tenant.
