Here is the scenario:
I am a unit owner at Midland Plaza Condominium. I am current with all my bills, dues etc, except for one: Two years ago, we were informed that we would have to pay back taxes, to the amount of roughly Peso 3000.- per sqm. The tax demand was in the name of the developer, Midlandplaza Development Corp, we are Midlandplaza Condo Corp. The developer still owns about 25% of all the units and runs a hotel within the condo and has all seven seats on the board of the association. About 70% of the unit owners refused to pay, questioning the legality of the whole process.
Our last AGM was in 2007, there was no agm till now, April 2011. I have not received any more demands about those back taxes.
At the agm this April, after we were counted towards establishing a quorum, we were informed that we would be ineligible to vote at the meeting.
Is this correct? Should there a) not have been sanctions if we were delinquent members?
It seems to me that we were lured into the meeting just to make sure that there is a quorum, and bec. the majority there was the developer, they could then pass everything according to the developer's interest, amongst others "sanction the acts of the board from 2007 till now"
Can we be counted towards a quorum and then be disqualified to vote?
Thank you in advance for your reply/
