Owner Keys - Open Unattended Office, Open Closet, Open Key
Cabinet All Keys Marked With Apt # So they can be stolen and used by a thief
At 3:00 PM, March 18, 2004. An owner went to the SBCW office.
The office was open, he went in and looked around for someone in the office.
No one was there. He saw the keys, waiting to be stolen. __________________________________________
Article V, Section 15. "Right of Access" of the "By-laws of
Sapphire Bay Condominiums West". This section does not require that owners
turn over their keys to the Manager, or anyone else.
The last sentence of this Section refers to emergency access.
That sentence reads:
"In case of an emergency, such right of entry shall be immediate,
whether the unit owner is present at the time or not."
This clause is certainly operative without any owner having
to give their apartment key to SBCW Manager or anyone else.
If the owner is not available in case of an emergency, just
break the window in the door. Firemen frequently break windows to get into
burning buildings. _________________________________________
Also please refer to EXHIBIT E "Rules and Regulations for
Sapphire Bay Condominiums West", item 17, which reads as follows:
"If any key or keys are entrusted by a unit owner or by a member of his
family or by his agent, servant, employee, licensee or visitor to an employee
of the Board of Directors or of the managing agent, whether for such unit
owner's apartment unit or an automobile, trunk or other item of personal
property, the acceptance of the key shall be at the sole risk of such
unit owner, and neither the Board of Directors nor the managing agent
nor the manager shall be liable for injury, loss or damage of any nature
whatsoever, directly or indirectly resulting therefrom or connected therewith."
Given the proven lax security, an owner would be crazy to
entrust his key to the Manager of SBCW.
DON'T LET FRANK BARRY KEEP YOUR KEY HE CANNOT BE TRUSTED
