July 2016
Today, many management companies and their community associations voice concerns about financial responsibilities that are much similar to those they dealt with 10 years ago.

The condominium superlien continues to dominate the legislative landscape nationally and in New England. In Massachusetts, a grassroots lobbing campaign to win Congressional support for industry efforts to defend the superlien have borne fruit.

Based upon a few matters I have recently been involved in, a continuing issue facing Massachusetts condominiums is whether the repair, replacement, or restoration of a component of the common area and facilities constitutes an “improvement” subject to the vote of the unit owners pursuant to M.G.L. c. 183A, §18 or can be undertaken solely in the discretion of the board.
Mark Rosen, Esq.
People change. Markets change. Condos change. Many established condo complexes in Maine want to look outside the box and not automatically replace their common assets with what they have lived with for the last 20 or 30 years.
Jack Carr, P.E. RS, LEED-AP
We all know we should stick to all kinds of plans. After all, it is the responsible thing to do. We have household budgets, retirement savings, college education for children, etc.
Gary Daddario, Esq., CCAL
Growing up, parking for sporting events at the Civic Center was always an adventure in downtown Providence.
Frank A. Lombardi, Esq., CCAL
Mardi Gras. These two words conjure images of spectacle, revelry, and garish displays of celebration. The origins of this celebration trace their roots back to medieval Europe, though the festivities have likely evolved considerably since this time.
Scot Eriksen, Esq.

There isn’t much activity on the New England legislative radar screen, except in Vermont, where the CAI Vermont Legislative Action Committee (VTLAC) is concerned about two measures.
