difficult condo management

Post by sngsingapore » Wed, 07 Mar 2007 10:35 pm

Hi,

I am having a I hate the condo management week and need some advise on how to deal with it without writing them a nasty letter.
1. The MC Recently told my tennis coach to pay a monthly fee and a 200$ deposit to coach me on our condo courts. Apparently the management committe voted this in. And its suppose to be for liability. Anyone have good ideas on how to create an uproar about this insane rule. I am fuming b/c my coach will stop coming b/c I am his only client here and he doesn't want to pay. I've been told they are not going to let him into the condo if he doesn't pay. And I pay monthly for these people's services! Of course, b/c I rent , I can't even get on the MC.

I looked up the Singapore consititution and realised that I have no rights!

Any ideas?

I would take it up, with the owner of the apartment, they must have a say on this issue, if the owner is also paying the service fees, direct, and you are paying the owner, It's difficult to know. However it's in the interest of all that live there really, that coaches should not have to pay! I would request a copy of the meeting, and maybe seek legal action.

The condo area has got to be covered for all liabilities of guests and tenants, I would believe, if it was to go to a court of law. The ground insurance would be covered by the service charges, in my opinion. and you would need a breakdown of what is covered, They the MC would argue, that a coach is running his own business, on the condo's premises, I think the only way, is that he coaches you for free! He's a guest only and not taking fees!

Hey I can coach you on tennis for free ... depending on where you stay of course.

I used to teach tennis for a little bit in the US... but not for advance players though. More for beginners.

Thanks for replies. Good ideas.

I am in Upper Bukit Timah and I usually take lessons during the day time on weekdays.

Live with it, this is life in condos in Singapore, you hear this all over the place.

Your coach should be familiar with this, most condos have these insane rules.
Time will come....
