What kind of lawyer would handle a dispute with a home owners insurance company?

Asked over 1 year ago - Clearwater, FL

Mold has been created in a first floor condominium by the condo above it. The condo
above keeps the temperature much lower than the first floor condo which caused humidity
and ceiling mold. The insurance company claims it covers mold. Investigators found sub-
surface mold but the company claims it is surface mold and won't cover costs. What now?

    Answered . You may not need to call any lawyer. Your insurance company may be saying this it covers mold only within the "parametric boundaries" of your condominium unit. That is correct. The space between units is a common area. Mold in the common area is the respoonsibility of the condominium association and its insurance. Before you hire a lawyer, check with your condominium association.
