For the condo association at the Trump Palace in Sunny Isles Beach, unit owner Rhonda Hojandiov has been a disruptive force throughout the building for more than three years. For Hojandiov, the condo association has failed to stop her upstairs neighbor from harassing her during the same time period. So now the association wants a Miami-Dade Circuit Court judge to shut down Hojandiov’s complaining.

According to a civil lawsuit filed by the association against Hojandiov and her husband Samuel last month in Miami-Dade Circuit Court, the association wants an injunction prohibiting her from “acting in an inappropriate manner and otherwise interfering with the operations of the association and its employees.”

Attorneys for Hojandiov and the condo association did not return phone messages seeking comment. Property records show the couple purchased a three-bedroom unit on the eighth floor of the Trump Palace, at 18101 Collins Avenue, for $1.1 million in 2006. 

Among the building’s residents: Dezer Development President Gil Dezer, who lives in a three-story condo.

The lawsuit accuses Hojandiov of making up unsubstantiated claims such as someone is throwing or pouring things on her balcony, following her in the building, accessing her unit without authorization and trying to kill her.

“However, despite her allegations and the investigation by the association and the police, neither the association or the police have been able to find any support for the claims she is making,” the lawsuit states. “When making the allegations and demanding action, Rhonda Hojandiov routinely yells, screams at, threatens and otherwise interferes with security and management and otherwise interferes with the operation of the condominium.”

The lawsuit alleges that Hojandiov creates a scene in front of residents and visitors and demands that she conduct herself in “a manner so as not to interfere with or otherwise unreasonably and unduly harass and annoy association employees.”

However, Hojandiov’s attorney Dennis Freeman said his client is the one being harassed, according to a letter he sent to the association on April 6. In his letter, which was attached to the lawsuit, Freeman claims nothing has been done about unknown persons in a ninth floor unit right above Hojandiov’s condo that are causing trouble.

“The bizzare behavior includes, but it is not limited to throwing rocks on the terrace, spilling beverages on the terrace floor and on the windows,” Freeman wrote. “The continued denial of the events in question and taking no action will not be tolerated.”
