Association Not Responsible for Damage to Condo Unit's Interior
Facts: Two condominium association members discovered physical damage to their unit. One of the two thermostats within the unit malfunctioned and failed to register a temperature beyond 55 degrees. This caused the heat to run constantly at a high temperature for approximately one month. The continuous heat resulted in cracks in the dry wall, damage to the ceilings and woodwork, and damage to the furniture and floors. The second thermostat, located upstairs, was damaged by the consistently high temperatures in the unit.
