Hi Laura: You asked about renters & laundry fees... >From a person who thinks about fees & fairness, but doesn't have a laundry machine in the CH.. I am thinking that landlords are charging enough so that the rent partly covers their condo fee. So, renters ARE paying for machine repairs, etc., via their rent. The test of this theory would be: if I was an owner, and my condo fee went up a bunch, would I feel it reasonable to raise the rent the next time I could? I think so.. However, you are still possibly left with the feeling that there are more people in the community, so the depreciation is happening faster. But again: if those people did not rent, they could use that space for expanding their own household: taking on a roommate or a lover; or having a child. So, I think the rate of depreciation of the machines is probably going to end up being proportional to the number of bedrooms in the community, whether the bedrooms are occipied by renters or not. We used the same logic to convince ourselves that having any special 'renters fees' was unreasonable. -Jim Snyder-Grant New View cohousing, Acton MA Where we FINALLY have the mailboxes in the CH instead of at the entrance.. .where we have MANY events in the next few days: end of school parties for various age cohorts, a couple of showers, the home schoolers get an event as well, we even will squeeze in a meal or two.
