I live in a 2 unit condo in MA. I'm a Trustee and so is the other unit owner.
A trustee of what? Are you saying that your ownership interest in the condo is held in a trust?
Yes. Trustees of the Condominium. Myself and the other unit owner are both listed as the Trustees per the Master Deed/Declaration Of Trust. The DOT states there should be at all times 2 Trustees.
A new unit owner moved in over a year ago. Th owner rents out their unit and has two new tenants, one moved in last summer and one just in Jan.
Not really following this. You've mentioned five different people: (1) you; (2) the "other unit owner" who is also "a Trustee;" (3) the "new unit owner;" (4) the tenant who moved in last summer; and (5) the tenant who moved in in January. Did person #3 buy the other unit from person #2?
There is (1) me - who owns Unit A and; (2) the "new unit owner" - who owns unit B - a separate unit. There are only 2 units in the Condo.
The owner of Unit B person #2 rents out their unit and has two current tenants (one who moved in last summer and one who move in recently). Previous to these tenants the owner also had 2 other tenants one who moved out after their lease was up, and another tenant who was evicted.
So to summarize:
1) I own unit A. I"m a Trustee.
2) Another owner owns unit B. They are a Trustee. This owner rents out his unit and currently has two tenants. This owner sometimes occupies or stays in their unit with their tenants. So, at times the unit is occupied by more than 3 people unrelated by blood.
Our master deed states "the no unit is to be occupied by more than 2 people unrelated by blood."
I assume there's a typo in this quote.
Yes, this is a typo. it should read "All Units shall be used for residential purposes; no unit shall be occupied as a residence by more than one (1) family unit or by more than two (2) persons unrelated by blood or marriage.
The unit owner doesn't per se stay at the unit although last summer they did and did so while leasing and having two different tentants, so the unit was being occupied by 3 people unrelated by blood. I'm wondering if it's ok for the owner to have 2 tenants, or if the owner counts as occupying the unit as an owner even though the owner doesn't stay at unit all the time?
I can barely follow this (and this appears to be the only question in your post). As far as whether "it's ok," I don't know. It's certainly "ok" with me. Is it "ok" with you?
I'm asking if its ok per the language in Master Deed and as written above? Would the owner of Unit B even if not living full time at the unit be considered an "occupant"? Because if the owner is considered an "occupant" then 3 people would be occupying Unit B who were unrelated by blood or marriage, which appears to be in conflict with the rules and regulations of the Master Deed.
Further, when I went into the basement today after I got home from work there were all holes cut in the drywall ceiling and the installation was removed
Is the basement part of your unit or the other unit or is it common area?
The basement is considered the common area.
I'm wondering how I should even respond to these false accusations
Well...if someone falsely accuses me of something, my typically response is to explain I did not do the thing of which I was falsely accused. Is there some reason why you would consider responding in any other way?
