To: All UCOM Members
Please contribute your financial support towards the prosecution of an important appeal in the Michigan Supreme Court:
1. Remit your contribution in the amount of $2,500 (or such lesser amount as the Association is able to contribute). Note that monthly installments are also acceptable if you make a pledge for the committed contribution.
2. Send your check c/o UCOM at the above address payable to “Coventry Parkhomes Condominium Association’s Lien Priority Fund”.
3. Monies (and pledges) are needed asap, but by March 15th 2013 at the latest.
One of our fellow members of UCOM is seeking leave to appeal an important case to the Supreme Court of Michigan to reverse an unfavorable decision rendered by the Michigan Court of Appeals. The decision could, potentially, affect most condominium associations in the State of Michigan and which, if not reversed, could result in Michigan condominium associations losing the potential to recoup literally millions of dollars in assessments on which they rely for funding the expenses of their condominiums. Coventry Parkhomes Condominium Association has borne the financial burden of prosecuting this case to this point; however, being cognizant of Coventry’s economic limitations, we are asking all members of UCOM to support Coventry Parkhomes in the pursuit of this cause by contributing financially as well. Contact UCOM President, Marty Starrman (248-352-8490), or UCOM and Coventry’s general legal counsel, Robert M. Meisner (248-644-4433), if you should have any questions.
The United Condominium Owners of Michigan (UCOM) is dedicated to the interests of condominium owners in the state of Michigan.
UCOM was founded as a non-profit corporation in 1973 to serve the growing demand for current information, guidance and motivation for those who have adopted the condominium lifestyle.
UCOM, over 36 years after its founding, continues to be the only organization in Michigan devoted to the education and training of condominium leadership - the officers, directors and committee chairpersons who serve their neighbors and co-owners by regular contributions of personal time and study to make their communities wisely and fairly administered, cost efficient, enjoyable - and to maintaining and improving property values.
UCOM provides year-round services to its members on a budget derived from moderate membership dues based on association size (number of units). UCOM by-laws permit and encourage non-voting membership for suppliers and others with professional relationships, including management companies; legal, accounting and insurance firms; developers and realty companies.
UCOM accomplishments benefit condominium owners generally, such as presentation of consumer (owner) views and concerns about the 1978 revision of the Michigan condominium law. With other concerned groups, UCOM aided in getting the Michigan Public Utility Service Commission to modify rate structures of gas utilities - a change which benefited condominium associations and owners.
