Hi again! I was able to review the condo docs and written below is what I think is relevant.(c) The unit includes the room containing the heating and air-conditioning apparatus serving only that unit (whether or not located within the unit boundaries), which apparatus is part of the unit. Any portion of a utility system or other apparatus serving more than one unit (e.g., pipes, conduits, ducts) which is located partially within and partially outside the unit is part of the common elements. Any portion of a utility system serving only one unit which is located outside the unit is a limited common element appurtenant to that unit.(d) Notwithstanding the ownership of the various portions of the Common Elements the Unit by virtue of the foregoing boundary description, the provisions of the By-laws, attached as Exhibit "C" hereto, shall govern the division of maintenance
and repair responsibilities between the Unit Owner and the Unit Owners Association of the Condominium.(e) The Common Elements of the Condominium shall include all portions of the Condominium other than the Units.MAINTENANCE RESPONSIBILITIES:
Heating and Cooling Systems -- Association: All components serving more than one unit or exclusively serving common element components. Unit Owner: All components serving one unit or located partially within and partially outside the boundaries of a unit but serving only that unit.Does this mean I'm responsible even though the storage unit is technically outside, but connected to, my unit? I have an HVAC
tech coming to inspect the unit today, but since the unit is pretty small, I'm assuming some of the apparatus or main line is located somewhere else in the building and possibly services more than just my unit. The maintenance guy snaked the main drain line to clear the clog, so if the clog originated there, can I assume this would be considered part of the common element and would be the responsibility of the HOA? Or is it still my responsibility because the leak started at my unit? If it is my responsibility, what damages
should I expect to pay for since he failed to mitigate mold damage? He wants the drywall and ceiling replaced because of the mold. I am attaching pictures of the damage to both units. Since I cleaned up immediately and ran a fan until dry, I have minimal damage and no mold whatsoever.Sorry for so many questions. Thank you for all your assistance with this matter!
