Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
I don't know how long ago..im guessing more than a yr..could even be a couple yrs. The tenant said he patched it but it never was repaired right and keeps leaking. Im concerned there might be more damage than just the leak itself..But wher do I turn? . This is in PA.
Is the owner of the property liable or my wife who ostensibly had the property during the event?
I think Im learning also that my wife did not pay the home insurance and let it lapse..we have an agreement she would have these up to date before I took the deed. How does that factor in? thanks
I got the rest of the info. The damage happened by a dog about a year ago (insurance said they would cover it if its vandalism), I got pictures. My tenant said my wife who owned it was notified and did nothing..not even file an insurance claim..that he knows of. My wife let the insurance run out so it cancelled, but was in place during this incident. The owner next door said he lost track of where his tenant went. What are my best options to get this repaired and who do I go after?
If I cant locate the owner, who do I go after next? My wife gave me damaged property. Isnt she liable?
