i was in real estate for 12 years and i would be floored if this was an HOA issue. it is most likely a tenant/owner of unit issue...because it the tenant told the owner it was leaking but the owner did not take necessary repair then the owner should be liable...if the tenant did not tell owner then tenant should be liable...

whoa....if it were me, i would only contact MY insurance company as a last resort...because really, the owner/tenant should take care of everything. this is a wter issue and their have been cases where insurance premiums have gone up significantly because of water damage (the whole mold scare). thei have also been issues where if a home went up for sale and their was a water issue within the last 7 years, another insurance carrier would not insure the property, cancelling the sale...not saying this will happen but just use your insurance as a last resort.

    yea - paul talked to the owner upstairs, and he isn't fighting us at all. which is good - we just need to get moving and get this done! our insurance agent is paul's best friend - and he actually just stopped by for a whole seperate reason - and gave us some advice. so we're all good. this just couldn't be worse timing!

    oh, and we get our first call from someone who is interested in renting the place - she called this morning! fabulous. yea, here, rent our place, don't mind the gaping hole in the ceiling.

      You could promote it as having "high ceilings" or "exposed beams" or "airy"

        we were thinking of saying we had a skylight, but it's really a "bottom of the neighbors floor" light. and not really light at all, more dark and damp. close - right?

            ooohh - have you seen those fake skylights? like they look like clouds and the sky, but they're just a light w/a picture eluminated? that's a fabulous idea.

              Wow - Ann - I'm so sorry. You know, right before we left for our wedding we found out we had a leak in our ceiling in a bathroom that we never use. It had leaked between the wall into the adjoining bedroom and there was mold. ACK!

              Well, we called the builder - it was their defect (thank god) and they immediately came out and repaired it. When we got back from our honeymoon it was all fixed - you couldn't tell that anything ever happened.

              But it was STRESSFUL while we were going through it. I kept telling the builder (who is GREAT), "but I'm getting married in 5 days!"

              So sorry!

                Dang - sorry to hear! Good thing the developer took care of it - they're not always that accomodating!

                Oh yea, update: the wood floor below where the mini-flood happened is ruined as well. And the guy upstairs isn't being great - he wants a "professional opinion" about where the leak started. So he's coming over Mon AM at 7:30 - he damn well better coorperate, or he will find out how nasty this midwest gal can get!

                Umm... so his BUCKET that was catching water isn't a good enough idea of where the leak started?
