I own a condo, the upper back deck was replaced. Anything added to the deck we lost. My unit is down stairs , I lost a extended part of roof/ that was on the upper deck, upstairs people lost storage room. This is upgrades we made to deck.
I got a estimate to get my overhang upgrade back for $1,000 ,on the same piece of paper. upstairs to get the storage room back it's $3,000. however the board did not charge upstairs people to get their storage room butt they're charging the downstairs people to get the upgrade back. Both had upgrades both were taken away. They pick upstairs to not have to pay to get there upgrades back but. Down stairs has to pay to get upgrade back.
You will need to take all of the documentation into an attorney for review before they can give you any advice. Use Avvo's features to find an attorney near you. Without reviewing anything, it is possible contractually they were required to replace a room at no charge to the upstairs people.
The information provided does not constitute legal advice, nor does it establish an attorney-client relationship. The information provided is merely intended to give you a general answer as to the law with respect to the general question you have asked.
The rights and obligations of repairs on "condos" is controlled by certain documents that created the Horizontal Property Regime (a.k.a Condominiums or Condos). You should talk to the Condo board or property owners association that should be functioning to maintain the "common areas" of the Condos and have them explain their different treatment. There may be a valid reason. If you do not like the reason, you should go visit a lawyer about your options. However, lawyers normally charge by the hour on real estate matters so be aware that you will probably have to pay to get an opinion that you can rely upon. All of the rights and obligations should be set forth in the documents that set up the Condo and the Boards Rules and Regulations.
This answer does not create a attorney client relationship and cannot be relied upon as a legal opinion as there are too many unknown facts to this matter to render an opinion at this time. Campbell & Grooms, PLLC http://www.campbellgrooms.com
