Their condo was destroyed in shooting that claimed Brentwood officer but couple gets bill for dues and fees
The retirees lost nearly everything — furniture, clothes, two cats, his coin collection and 37 years worth of personal belongings.
Two weeks ago, the couple received a bill from Mill Pond Crossing, the condo association where they had lived for 3 1/2 years before May 12, when Officer Stephen Arkell was shot and killed, and the building was destroyed, the couple said Wednesday.
“We don’t understand why we have to pay a condo fee on something that no longer exists,” Jim Maguire said on Wednesday. “You can’t live there. You can’t enjoy the surrounding amenities.”
“This is a private matter not to be aired on television,” said Catherine Deloge of Royal Management Co. in Haverhill, Mass.
Maguire acknowledged that the Mill Pond association’s insurance is paying his rental at his current home, the Hampson Town Estates condo. He still thinks the fees are unwarranted.
John Brisson, a Manchester lawyer who frequently represents condominiums, said condo owners don’t have the right to withhold monthly fees, even if problems exist with the property.
