One reader asks about claiming a deduction for management costs as an apartment owner who had a house meeting in March 2019 and again in January 2024, even though the property manager’s legal obligation is to call a meeting every two years.

It’s important to note that a court may not necessarily view the failure to call an owners’ meeting for almost five years as a “gross” breach of duty, especially considering the disruptions and uncertainties during the Corona pandemic.
