Jeanne Goodman asked: > > Do your condo docs refer to any policies associated with rental policies or roommates? Any recommendations?> Cambridge Cohousing (MA) Bylaws refer to the establishment of Rules and Regulations, which include rules on rental and leasing of units. One of our 5 Rules & Regs is "Rentals." The bylaws and R&R's can be found on our website: http://www.cambridgecohousing.org The rules apply only to rentals when the owner is absent. The purpose of the regulation is to ensure that rentals are short-term and infrequent and that most units are owner-occupied. We also have 2 rental units owned by the Cambridge Housing Authority and these are addressed in the Bylaws in section on Decision Making/Voting Rights. One question that often arises when an owner is renting is how the "required" participation will be carried out. For us that includes "trash duty" and "security," but might also include meal participation. Most owners request that tenants accept those duties, but it is not spelled out anywhere.
