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

Brickell, at 1155 Brickell Bay Drive, for breach of contract
and creating a nuisance.
Condo association attorney Joel Galkin did not respond to a

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
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.
