Condo insurance conflict of interest?

I'm in the process of buying my first condominium. Is using the same insurance agent that holds the condo association's insurance for my own homeowners/content policy a good idea? If not, any suggestions for insurance agents in the Bergen County area of NJ?

Does "maxiumum occupancy" in short term condo rental apply to weekend guests?

Does "maxiumum occupancy" in short term (2 months) condo rental apply to weekend guests? We're renting a condominium in Florida for 2 months. The rental agreement states that the maximum occupancy is 6 (three bedroom unit). We are a family of 6. My daughter would like to invite a couple of friends for a weekend (overnight guests), which would bring the number to 8 for two nights. Would this break the condo rules? What if they stay a week? If it's not permitted, are they allowed to have dinner with 8 people eating in the unit?

I have bats in my belfry! How can I inspire action from my condo association?

Bats are living (and excreting) in the attic of my condo unit. I first noticed them in Sept 08, and immediately contacted my property management company for removal and cleaning. Since then, I've called every 2-3 weeks and attended two HOA meetings to bring up the issue. I keep getting excuses or brushed off. How can I motivate them to ACTUALLY remove the bats, protect my unit from further infestation and clean the insulation? [more inside]

This contract's binding, right?

Insurance Underwriting. Property. Florida. These three statements combined can cause poodles to faint, white to change to black, AC to become DC, and various flora to mutate in the Tropics.
