Dear Mister Condo,
Our condo is a stand-alone house. We had minor leaking from rain that came thru the roof and stained our ceiling inside. The roof is 12 years old. They repaired the roof last week. Can I have them pay for painting our ceiling?
Mister Condo replies:
R.P., generally speaking, condo unit interiors are not included in association repairs. Seeing as your unit is actually a house, your rules might be different so be sure to check the definition of your unit. Typically, you own form the paint in so the inside of your ceiling is likely your responsibility. The repair may even be covered by your homeowner’s insurance should you wish to make a claim. My guess is you are on your own when it comes to painting the ceiling but do check your documents in case I am wrong. Good luck!
