My question involves a condominium located in the State of: Washington.
The 19-unit building in which I purchased a unit was constructed as housing for first-time buyers and low income buyers--this I learned after I purchased my unit. The two largest units were sold on the regular market, and I purchased one of these.
The condo board was already set up by the buildder by the time I moved in. And these are low income and first time buyers who don't have the knowledge or experience to manage a property worth $4-5 million.
This is the latest thing they have done: Issued "House Rules" which indicate the Unit Owners can only move on weekdays before 5 p.m. Imagine this body issuing a rule that prevents people from moving during the times most people move, which is in the evening and on Sat and Sunday.
This board also decided in these same "House Rules" that Unit Owners would have to pay them $200 for the privilege of moving in or out.
These are property rights violations, aren't they?
I am wondering if these rules also have a constitutional element? Impeding my right to go about my private affairs (like moving) without government (condo government) interference?
Does anyone have comments based upon legal principles to share with me?
