Ask Curbed: Rising Maintenance Charges

With 2007 soon approaching, owners may find themselves paying a bit more per month. But when is more too much? A reader asks:

At this time of year when Board's are (thinking of) implementing common charge/maintenance increases:
· What % is acceptable to increase monthly costs by and for what reasons?
· What relationship high(er) maintenance has to purchase price?

The answers seem to be obvious, but from my discussions and personal experience they aren't. It's the season for sharing. Let's hear it.
