  • Condo. Assoc. Who Signs Contract? Massachusetts

    The Property Mgr and I have different opinions about who should sign a contract.

    The Board of Trustees consists of unit owners - 5 in all. There are three officers: Pres., VP, and Treasurer.

    We have a contract for a large project. I think the Treasurer should sign it. Property Mgr. thinks the President should sign it. Only one signature is required from the vendor.

    Any laws out there about this?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I have no knowledge of the laws on this, but I served on my Co-Op board as Treasurer in NYC.

    We did some large building repair projects that cost quite a bit of money. The President was always the primary to sign off of the projects. For many of the larger projects, we all signed off even if only one signature was required for the vendor. We signed off by approving the job in the monthly or special called meeting minutes and then saying, The President will sign for the board on this project. I forget exactly how it was worded in the minutes.
