If you have been complaining to the homeowners’ association about a common area defect that has been causing water intrusion or flooding in your home and the HOA has not responded you need to act. Generally, these common area defects including roofing problems, deck issues, poor landscaping maintenance, improper slopes/drainage and other maintenance issues. Don’t be fooled by the HOA telling you there is nothing they can do. You have rights!
First, document everything. Pictures and video are very powerful. You CANNOT have enough visual evidence.
Second, make sure you have written communication of putting your HOA on notice of the water damage or mold issues.
Third, get the property tested for indoor air quality. While not necessary it can be an important step in establishing a causal connection between any health issues and the indoor environment. Of note, don’t just hire anyone. Many mold companies on the internet are not qualified, assemble pre-populated or canned reports or use substandard testing techniques. Call our office for qualified mold testing companies.
Fourth, if you are experiencing health issues you MUST go to the doctor. The absence of medical treatment may lead to problems of proof down the road.
