Owners of a few Mountain-Side condos have discovered that PCLMM Inc. dba Mountain Managers employees have entered units while their occupants were out for the day and searched the premises without any authorization or notification. This was first discovered in August of 2011 when guests reported to a vacation rental company that a PCLMM Inc. dba Mountain Managers employee entered a condo they had rented during their absence. When questioned, Mountain Side Condominium Association (Colorado HOA 24048) representatives acknowledged that they have indeed entered condos in the past without notifying owners and without a documented emergency. These activities are against the rules and regulations (not to mention the law) established by the Mountain Side Condominium Association HOA 24048, which stipulates that the HOA has the right to enter a condo without permission only in a case of an emergency.
In December of 2012, PCLMM Inc. dba Mountain Managers notified all owners that they were going to enter all units and conduct a new search. This was not in response to an emergency and therefore required the owner’s consent prior to entering each unit. The PCLMM Inc. dba Mountain Managers entered their understanding of the regulation into the record during the Mountain Side Condominium Association HOA 24048 Board of Directors meeting minutes. Subsequently, 30+ owners expressly denied them access to their units. PCLMM Inc. dba Mountain Managers employees disregarded these verbal and written notices and proceeded to enter the units that they knew were unoccupied. Mountain Managers, Inc. employees then monitored occupied units and waited for the occupants to leave and immediately entered when they saw the occupants leave for the day.
This has prompted several owners to file police reports for trespassing and illegal entry (cf. illegal entry into D-317, E279 and G-206) against the Mountain Side Condominium Association HOA-24048 Board of Directors and PCLMM Inc. dba Mountain Managers. If you have filed a police report and would like to share yours or simply want to ensure that nobody enters your unit without your knowledge authority or permission again, please share your thoughts and join the discussion on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/mountainsideowners/.
