In an article entitled "A Private Matter" by W.B. King in the Cooperator's December 2012 issue, Roy Stillman was quoted in the following paragraph re: The "Rules" of Privacy:
For a board, a gray area exists with regard to privacy when forming (or amending) governing documents to address issues such as determining access to units. Regardless of the initiative, Roy Stillman, president of the Westchester based Stillman Property Management, says governing boards must look to industry professionals for guidance. "Whether it is a management company or an attorney, a board needs an advisor. If they can't afford an attorney on retainer then they should hire one on a case by case basis because it's always best to err on the conservative side."
The basic rule for boards to remember is that a person has a reasonable expectation of privacy within his or her living space, notes Stillman.
