It has been recently discovered that the residential cooperative that I live in has been charging heat bills for the membership based on 'guesstimating' - as the meters have been broken for years. This can not be legal - pls see below. TY

Location: Boston  |  Law type: condominiums Commented 1x

I live in a limited equity cooperative. Last winter several members began receiving heat bills 5x higher than the usual charge. Through a series of events, it was discovered that the metering for the building had actually been broken for years - and that invoicing of heat charges for the membership has been 'guesstimated' ! The BOD / management company  was exposed re: this fact - as well as their negligence to fix the meters, as well as maintain the heating system - which now has to be completely replaced as the fiberglass insulation was riddled with mold. The BOD, Management Co ( which has decided to stop managing the building ) as well as the lawyer are not being forthcoming with information. They refuse to adjust several members high heat bills - and instead are passing around the buck between them. There is zero transparency at this point - and they have recently made all BOD meeting ' Executive' - due to members showing up and asking questions. This would seem to fall under the category  of ' fraud'  and I don't see how this could be at all legal to make up arbitrary charges for the membership.Any advice would be greatly appreciated - TY!
