renting from a Condo owner/need Board approval?

Posted by dak on January 23, 2001 at 08:44:19:

The owner of a condo unit in a condo building wants to rent to me for which I signed a lease and gave 1st month rent/security. Owner has now been told by the condo board that I have to fill out an application to the board even though the owner has agreed to me. There is a $500 non-refundable processing fee, a $250 non-refundable elevator moving-in fee. On top of this is a non-refundable $500 fee that goes to an individual who used to work for the company that manages the building and now has his own company and is still involved in the management of the building. Are these charges legit? The owner is equally disgusted with this.

In the rules of the condo there is a section for renters that says "all rentals must be arranged thru xxx." (this is the official management company, not the one mentioned above). "No unauthorized rentals will be permitted without the expressed written approval of the Unit Owner OR the Board of Managers"(condo board). Since the rules says the Unit Owner or the condo board, why do i need the permission/application to the board if the owner approves?
Appreciate any advice. Thanks.
