Our declarations and bylaws states that it is the responsibility of each owner "to maintain, repair and replace at his expense such portions of the appurtenances to his unit and of any exclusive use area licensed, granted or otherwise assigned to such owner, as the association shall from time to time determine. Until such time as the association determines to the contrary, each owner shall be responsible for the repair, maintenance and appearance of all ...windows, doors, vestibules and entry-ways and of all associated structures and fixtures therein, which are appurtenances to his unit. The foregoing includes, without limitation, responsibility for all breakage, damage, malfunctions and ordinary wear and tear of such appurtenances."
I am not against arranging for window washing but the bylaws make it clear that the expense should be paid by each owner if they want the service. Is it legal for the board to use our maintenance funds for this?
