MEM Property Management — continued unethical behavior & threatening responses
MEM Property Management has been managing our property for several years. They do not follow the bylaws put in place and in our opinion only take direction from one member of the board even when that board member has been found guilty and exposed for not following documented and filed bylaws. That member appears to direct management as to who they should or should not respond to even when legitimate complaints come from several different owners. Our property manager is not a "property manager" but an "operations manager" and is never been seen on the property doing his job. Although both the operations manager and the President Martin Laderman are included in email requests, questions, photos of problems and/or complaints they do not take control and handle the situation. The property has visually deteriorated and continues to go downhill. Instead of Martin offering to speak to this "group" of dissatisfied owners with the same complaints, he simply ignores. His legal counsel responds with the paragraphs listed below threatening the person who files a simple non-threatening negative complaint.
