Customer Question

I am a member of a Condo Assn Board in FL. A roofer put a new flat roof on one of our two 5-story residential buildings. Whenever it rained, the roof leaked into a 5th floor unit. In each instance we reported it to the roofer and had repairs done. Our condo assn paid the contractors. Through our management company, we have submitted claim to the roofer. The roofer has refused to reimburse our assn. As the amount in question is less than $2,000, we are reluctant to retain our usual attorney to pursue our claim against the roofer. May we pursue our claim without legal counsel? Please assist us in weighing our options. Thank you. MN

Dear Customer,For a claim of $2,000.00 you can pursue this in small claims court without an attorney (see: - while most court actions by entities (such as an HOA) require an attorney to represent the entity, small claims is an exception).
