i remember last year annual meeting when i handed over a copy of the case law concerning occupancy of the apartment. i stated that out co op was around 50% owner occupied and that our proprietary lease stated AND. The managing agent said it stated OR, i corrected him and said it stated AND
i Just found out that he also told the board of directors that it stated OUR and we couldn’t get rid of certain people living in the apartment without the shareholder.
The board of directors are not covered by indemnity insurance it falls under their not doing due diligence, self dealing, not stopping self dealing when it is made aware to them or they know about it, and Failing in their fiduciary responsibilities.
I have paperwork, my faxes , that covers all of the above and also includes the managing company.
