MEM Property Management / unethical behavior

3 Somerset, NJ, United States Review updated:

I have lived at Whitehall Manor in Somerset NJ since 2011. In that time, there have been 4 management companies. MEM is the latest, and by far the worst.
The greatest problem with Whitehall Manor is it is controlled by a dictator, who is unfortunately supported by 60% of the homeowners. This dictator has done many things to hurt the Whitehall community, such as severely restricting the homeowners from looking at the HOA financial records, and spending approx. $200, 000 suing previous board members over an insignificant email account. Previous property managers quit because they could not work with this dictator. Previous property managers had some sense that they had a responsibility to the homeowners, not just the board members. It seems that MEM has no such ethics. It seems MEM is happy to abuse homeowners at the direction of the dictator, as long as they are getting paid for it. Based on my experience at Whitehall Manor, I would agree with every negative comment made against MEM and Martin Laderman.

    Please be advised that this Law Firm is legal counsel to Martin H. Laderman and MEM Property Management Co., Inc. ("MEM") and in that capacity your tortious and illegal conduct of impugning Mr. Laderman's good character and reputation by making statements rises to level of actual civil libel and slander. To make your tortious conduct even worse; you made this slanderous statement on a Google web posting. Your slanderous and reckless comment was made to not only sully Mr. Laderman's reputation, but also to tortiously interfere with MEM's contractual relationship with its client Whitehall Manor Condominiums

    You must immediately Cease and Desist from your tortious and illegal conduct of disparaging and libeling Martin Laderman and MEM's good corporate name and reputation. You must also send Mr. Laderman a written apology for your tortious conduct and remove your negative posting.

    Please be further advised that your failure to comply with this formal Cease and Desist Directive and the demanded corrective measures will result in the filing of a civil action. Please provide a written response to this Cease and Desist Directive Your failure to respond or your failure to comply will result in the filing of the aforementioned lawsuit without further notice to you. Guide your actions accordingly.

    I strongly suggest that you refer this matter to an attorney of your own choosing so that you can obtain competent legal counsel as to this very serious matter that you have created.

    @K., Perfect. This threat from Martin Laderman is a perfect example of his unethical behavior. This is a complaint site about MEM, about MEM's actions. Obviously, complaints will be posted here. Laderman send this response to anyone who criticizes him. It would seem that Laderman and the dictator that rules Whitehall Manor are a perfect match.

    @K., MEM did not state they tried to prevent or warn owners but allowed a dysfunctional board's decision to transfer accounts to "one" bank averaging $551, 000 of Association Funds not covered by FDIC insurance in 2018. Two of five board members have resigned and MEM allows a third "inactive" board member to remain on the board. The board does not fill the positions per the bylaws and attorney advise. MEM, in their silence, appears to support the board in not following auditor's recommendations and MEM does nothing to state their positions to owners. Instead they offer no comment and just allow the board to make fiscally irresponsible decisions. MEM should, instead of sheepishly following a "partial" board's bad decisions, openly express to owners that they agreed or disagreed. If MEM disagreed then they should resigned since there have been so many poor decision being made. This information was provided to owners by a prior board member who witnessed and openly shared. This, in our opinion, is not a strong management company working for all owners and protecting assets. Once MEM is questioned by owners they just ignore and stop replying to their emails. Very unprofessional.

    Martin Laderman's legal counsel response to owner's negative complaints is very threatening.
