A lawyer with a condo association is telling us that the month-to-month lease we have with a tenant cancels and restarts every month and therefore we need to go before the board every month to get this "new" lease approved. Is he a$$ backwards like he seems?

If you agreed to that, then they can seek that payment. If you don't pay, they could sue you, and the court might not allow them to collect...Read more »
