Liability for unrequested repairs

Posted by Steve on May 10, 1999 at 15:19:23:

I lived in a co-op townhouse for 15 years. Approximately $3000 of equity was built up during this time. Prior to moving out, requests were made (in writing) to the management and Board of Directors as to our obligations for painting & repairs. They would not respond with any specifics. We decided to paint the unit because we were warned they would charge us $850 for this. After about 4 months, they sent us the remainder of our equity. They deducted $850 for painting, and we were also charged for repairs and cleaning! The Landlord said, as co-op members, we are not protected by the "Landlord/Tenant" acts. Where can I get information about my rights as a co-op member? Most everything I have found relates to renters only. Can you point me in the right direction to find rights specific to Michigan?

Thank you,
Steve Melcher
