We all know most homeowner’s associations are cheap and are often run be non-real estate professionals. Because of the this, necessary repairs and maintenance can be deferred to the detriment of the owners. Our HOA toxic mold lawyers know how to battle homeowner’s associations and the board of directors. When the HOA fails to fix a roof or maintain the waterproofing, this can lead to severe water damage insider the owner’s unit. Other times we see improper landscaping that allows water to intrude under the foundation and into the home. Of course, years of water intrusion can lead to pervasive toxic mold. To make matters worse, since you own the home where does the HOA think you are going to go? If you are a renter then you can give the requisite notice and move to another rental. But if you own the unit, does the HOA really think someone will buy it infested with toxic mold? This is what makes homeowner’s association cases so troublesome is that the owner is a prisoner in a toxic environment without recourse!
