Is anyone out there knowledgeable regarding condo fee_ especially if you work for a management company? I am in Wyoming, have a condo in San Antonio Texas that I pay regularly a monthly condo fee. I was out of town for a little over two months, but still sent my March, April, May fees. The March one got lost. They notified me in April, which I responded to immediately. They did not get back with me as promised, so last week (May 7th), I wrote a letter explaining that I had sent the fee, showed a copy of the check carbon, and asked that the late fee be waived. (I have never been late with the fee). I sent a second check to cover February with the letter. Now they say they will waive 'one month late fee', and are saying that I am three months late! They say that the April 1st payment was for February, the May 1st was for April! I don't understand, but I think this must be illegal, isn't it? Or can they get away with this? I hope this makes sense, and I hope there is a person who knows about these things. The moderator might move this to another site as he/she whishes, but please let me know where you may have moved it to! I am going nuts, as I am so far away, and feel like I am getting the shaft! You can pm me if you'd like. Thanks

wow, dc53, unfortunately, I have no advice or insight, but I just wanted to let you know I can empathize with how 'ripped off' you must be feeling. Sounds like maybe you need to get a live person on the phone, convince them to be your ally in getting this mixup resolved.
I know exactly how you feel; that sense of having no control whatsoever over your own finances and having no ally, no resource to turn to ....

Good luck to you!!!!!!

Thanks for the support- I have talked to the management company several times- they are the ones who were supposed to get back to me about April 15th, didn't, so I wrote a letter to the board on May 7th. They are in the business to collect mony, so they will try to get as much as they can, legal or not. I think I will pay the fee, then try to get with the appropriate people in Bexar County. Are you in SA? I looked up the Attorney General for Texas, and it says it does not help with individual cases- do you know who I would try to contact? Thanks

Take care,
