Hello. My name is Alex.Thank you for your question.I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Did condo association decline to address the situation or is condo association willing to work with you?
Thank you for your follow up.
How long ago was the condo built?
Do you have any written determination by a licensed contractor that the issue is structural or related to foundation of the condo?
Do condo bylaws address this type of issue?
Unfortunately, generally, it would be the condo owner who would be responsible for any damages inside the condo unit, unless the damage is caused by the condo association common element described in the bylaws, in that case the condo association would be liable to fix water damages and and related damages caused by the water damage.
It is important to hire an experienced local licensed contractor who can fully inspect the issue and can make a written determination as of the cause of the water damage, so the homeowner can act accordingly to the cause of the damage.
I wish you the best of luck!
