Division of Condominiums may investigate cooperative complaints

Question: I hope you can help with a very frustrating situation we have at our cooperative. One of our owners, who is also a director, is a real estate agent. This director regularly violates two of our covenants. First, we are a 55-and-over property, and he regularly sells units to persons of any age, with only a single director signing the approvals. I am afraid he is causing us to be non-compliant with the housing for older persons laws. Second, we have a five-year restriction on leasing by new owners, but he is brokering immediate rentals. He also appears to be advising sellers and prospective buyers on how to get around our covenants. Can you inform us of any agency that would investigate this issue?   Read the Q&A……………..
