Re: 3 years exposure to black mold

I am sorry to hear of the difficulties you and your
girlfriend are having. Condo situations can be particularly
challenging because of the question of who has responsibility
to repair - the owner, the HOA, or the neighbor.
This is a link to an excellent article of the matter. Hope
Also, read the HOA convenents, conditions and regulations
(CC&R) carefully, along with your individual insurance policy
and that of the HOA's.
There may be some answered spelled out there as to who is
responsible for what. Each HOA CC&R's are unique to that HOA
along with each individual insurance policy.
