  1. garden unit owner occupant

    If I understand this correctly, the HOA wants to require homeowners to carry adequate insurance to mold-abate and rebuild 2 (or more) units in case of a serious water event. What are the suggested levels of Building Property Protection for Garden Units and Townhouses?

    I know something like this happened recently in our village, and it was extremely frustrating to the occupants both up, and downstairs. I would really like to know how much it cost the relevant parties to make repairs. I would also like to know what kind of coverage the HOA carries, and if it applies to broken pipes inside the walls. Where does the Association’s liability end and where does the homeowner’s begin? Who is responsible for that turn valve that comes into the unit? And is that turn valve compatible with an automatic shut off device, or does it need to be replaced?

    Are the common area water shut-off valves accessible to the occupants in those closets? Seems like the sooner someone could shut off the water during a catastrophic water event, the better. Are we required to call and wait for someone to come and turn them off? What is that phone number we should have handy for emergencies?

    To further compliance, and as a convenience to the homeowners, has the HOA consulted with local plumbers to find us a good deal on the required changes? Will the HOA offer to replace water heaters and install automatic shut off valves for a reasonable price?

    I think these are fair, pragmatic questions. Some may be more obvious than others.
