I own a condominium
in Fl. The unit includes a balcony. Is it an owner or a condo association
responsibility to repair? Thankyou.
JA: Because real estate
law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: Florida, and no
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: Shortly after I bought the unit, we were informed by the association that the balconies needed repair as per the city codes. The balconies were repaired from association funds and we were told they met city codes. Now, 10 years later, we are told the balconies needed to be repaired due to the repair at that time not being done properly with proper materials, and we as owners are now responsible.
JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.
Customer: add: back then, 2005, we were told we could not use our balconies as they were "unsafe" as an owner had them inspected by the city.
