Real estate Q&A: My shutters were installed 15 years ago. Can board make me replace them now?

Q: We purchased our condo 15 years ago with hurricane shutters already installed. The new property manager is saying that there is no Architectural Approval form for the shutters in our file and we may be compelled to take them down. Since nothing was told to us about the shutters for 15 years, I believe that the shutters were approved but the Architectural Approval form must have been lost between different boards and different management companies. Any advice for us? – David
