Hello. I am sorry to hear that you are having this problem. If the basement floor hasn't dried in two months then they didn't correct the water problem. They cannot win a court case against you to collect that fine if they are in the wrong, which has forced you to park in the street. You might need the assistance of an attorney to prove your defense using expert testimony to establish what is wrong and what the association should have done to fix it.

Hello, I had ServPro do a moisture test on the area today and they are saying it is dry, but the floor is discolored. Is this water issue something I have to disclose if I sell the unit. Also, if I have a house inspection done prior to selling and it is clear, am I liable if something develops down the road within the wall. The reason I am asking this is because they only took plugs out of the wall to dry behind it and sprayed sporicide in these holes to help retard any mold growth. Also, they sprayed sporicide on the floor. They never removed the baseboards, just sprayed the floor under them.
Hello, Now that the floor is dry and I was able to get my car off the street, I am still left with this assessment. Do I have any recourse if the handyman did not perform a moisture test himself to make sure the area was dry before assessing me this fine? He told me that he sanded the wall and was able to vacuum up the dust, therefore, it is dry. This was 2 months ago. If I am liable for this assessment, does this have to be paid all at once or can it be paid in increments? If in increments, can they charge me interest?
