    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
    it helps.

    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.
