As San Diego’s leading representative of homeowners against homeowners associations for water damage and mold we know that dealing with HOAs can be a big hassle. Often times the board of directors and/or property managers neither know the law nor the health repercussions of mold and water damage.
Figuring out who is liable for condominium or home water damage can be difficult as it depends on the source of the water damage. Your association will most assuredly try to blame the problem on you or someone else. So, it is vitally important the you get a competent inspection to determine the cause. Don’t just rely on any contractor. We have a trusted network of construction experts that are knowledgeable about mold and water damage.
Regardless, you should take the following steps to make sure you are successful against your association:
- Take pictures of ALL water damage and visible mold
- Take pictures of ALL areas you believe to be causing the water damage
- Document all communication with the HOA or property manager
- Contact a well respected construction expert with experience in mold remediation
- If you are feeling ill you must get medical care. (We have great medical recommendations)
In addition, contact your homeowner’s association to put them on notice of any water damage coming from outside your home. Be persistent! The more times you put the HOA notice the less chance they can get out of liability. In the communication you should inform the HOA that mold growth can begin in as little as 24 hours so immediate assistance is necessary.
