Welcome and thank you for using JA. Since each state's laws are different can you tell me the state that you condo is situated in? As general rule the association/board is responsible for all damaged to the common areas that occur as a result of negligent maintaining the common areas. You stated the damages were caused by a drain. Is the drain a common area drain? Do you have a copy of your condo government documents. The documents should clearly set out the owners and HOA responsibility. Can you attach your governing documents?
