    Im curious as to why someone purchases a townhome when
    someone has a bathroom above your property. Did anyone
    think to have an inspection prior to signing the contract to
    purchase. Did anyone have an attorny review the contract of
    sale? Master Bath should mean some air contitioning to
    remove moisture after bathing. How long did it take to
    remove the soiled toiletry items? If you know what a p-trap
    is and had access to it, or do you have access. How do you
    know about other structural defects? At what time did you
    two decide on a de-humidifier to help remedy the problem, or
    was the capture bucket placed for the p-trap? I don't
    understand the general publics lack of committment to home
    maintenance. I am sure your hoa has a nice pretty sign at
    the entrace with vacancy posted somewhere; what do you
    expect from a condo with neighbors upstairs. It would be
    hard enough with common walls.
