I have a 2 part question.
1) I realize an HOA can charge $0.15 for a records request. I had a request for a document from my HOA and I received 36 pages, printed double sided. The HOA sent a bill for 71 pages at $0.15, or $21.30. They claim they can charge not only for each printed page (even though they printed double sided), but for a printed copy of the document for their own records. Do I really owe $21.30, or should it be 1/2 that, or less ($5.40) based on the number of pages I received?
2)To add insult to injury, the pages provided were copied/printed in such a way as to eliminate the last column of the data and I have requested that the entire report be rerun to include all the information that I requested. I expect them to send an additional bill for the corrected documents, again charging me for both my copies and their copies. Do I owe the HOA for the bill on the first set of copies provided, even though they didn’t include all of the information? I have my suspicions that the data was removed on purpose from the original request.
