My expensive floor at the condo I own is being ruined due to moisture on slab from plumbing leaks, a downspout clog etc., all of which are items for which the HOA is responsible? I have been attempting to get HOA Board to investigate and make repairs since mid Nov-2018. The only response from HOA is a 1/11/19 e-mail stating they identified a water source and they will follow up with an analysis. One of our courtesy guards told me that plumbers arrived on Jan. 10th and signed in to work outside my condo. I told them I had no knowledge and so I looked at paper vendor log that sits out in plain view in our common area guard house on property. It lists all contractors, service personnel (no private visitors) working inside the property each day and only shows name & company name of contractor etc., their phone #, time in and out, and the condo unit # they visit. I snapped a photo to include the contractors that visited my condo. Now the HOA management company is stating the photo was an invasion of privacy. The log sits out in plain view. I would never do anything I thought was wrong.
You should consider preparing a letter to mail by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the HOA to set out the facts and to demand the relief that you want. Take photographs of the issues, and attach them to your letter. Make sure that your letter is professional and business like as it may be evidence later.
If you do not get the relief that you want, consider suing the HOA to recover your damages.
If you were to retain an attorney, the legal analysis would start with a review of your contract to purchase the condo unit and the HOA declaration, and any other pertinent paperwork concerning the HOA and the condominium regime.
