My question involves real estate located in the State of: Michigan.
I live in a neighborhood with 15 others. Some are year round residents and some are summer cottages. We don't have a "association" that I am aware of nor is anyone else aware of any. We have a Road Meeting annually were some get together and discuss the Road and its maintenance. thThere is a "Chairperson" whom was elected 20+ years ago and a newer treasurer- not sure how he got there, anyway there is nothing in writing saying we all agree to anything. There is no contract, no rules, nothing. The talk about what should be done with the road- few of them offer up "motions" and then vote. But if you are not there then you do not get to vote. Bottom line if they "vote" to do a maintenance to the road which will cost each resident and it is approved by the attendees can they hold the rest of the neighbors liable for thier share? The treasurer Set the Summer Dues at $75.
no one contested - but it was not a motion or vote either.
They have no "books" the treasurer has the account in his name. Isn't this crazy....
