The condo association at a Brickell luxury tower is accusing three owners of putting the board of directors, property management staff and fellow residents through a hellish ordeal, according to a lawsuit filed in Miami-Dade Circuit Court.

The Mark Yacht Club on Brickell Bay Inc. earlier this month sued Nuri Munis, Pelin Munis Cakov and Seda Munis, who own two units in the 36-story condo building, the Mark on Brickell, at 1155 Brickell Bay Drive, for breach of contract and creating a nuisance.

Condo association attorney Joel Galkin did not respond to a phone message and email requesting comment. Efforts to reach Nuri Munis and his relatives were unsuccessful. Phone numbers listed for them were disconnected.

According to the lawsuit, Nuri Munis breached an Aug. 10 agreement with the condo association to provide construction workers with unhindered access into their condo on the 23rd floor from Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Munis has refused to abide by the agreement, the complaint states.

Furthermore, the lawsuit alleges that Nuri Munis and his relatives have engaged in a campaign to harass and intimidate condo association board members, property management employees and fellow condo owners. The suit claims the Munis’ have stalked residents by accusing them in a rude and threatening manner of violating the condo association’s governing documents.

“Nuri Munis shows up to the management office unannounced and pushes other residents out of the way so that he can get immediate access to the manager,” the lawsuit states. “He repeatedly and rudely interferes with conversations taking place between management and other residents concerning personal matters.”

Over one five week period, Munis made 21 unannounced visits to the property manager’s office without an appointment. He and Seda Munis also sent incessant emails making unreasonable demands and asserting false accusations to the condo’s board and property manager, the lawsuit alleges.

“During a 90-day period, Nuri Munis sent 230 emails to the board and management,” the complaint states. “Seda sent 88 emails during a 90-day period.”

The Mark Yacht Club on Brickell Bay Inc. is seeking an injunction against the Munis’ to stop them from going to the property management office without an appointment, sending emails and harrassing workers and residents.

Miami-Dade property records show Nuri Munis purchased a one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo on the building’s 23rd floor for $215,000 in 2002 and a two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit on the same floor a year later for $378,000.
