Dear Mister Condo,
I believe I have a slab leak resulting from an old foundation repair that went poorly. The HOA is responsible for foundation repair. Is the HOA responsible for the slab leak?
Mister Condo replies:
K.L., regardless of the cause of the slab leak the HOA will likely bear responsibility if you are correct that the HOA is responsible for foundation repair. A leaky slab is not a properly functioning slab and needs to be repaired by whomever is responsible. If the governing documents place that responsibility on the HOA, then so be it. Hopefully, they will choose a contractor who does a better job this time. All the best!
