Further Trial Needed for Condo Maintenance Lawsuit
Facts: After a member purchased a terrace-level condominium, he discovered drainage problems on his terrace that eventually caused mold and water damage to his condominium. The terrace-level condominiums in the community are surrounded on three sides by a wrap-around balcony. The initial damage from faulty drainage was further exacerbated by two hurricanes. The member sued the association, and the association asked the court to dismiss the lawsuit because the member's complaint technically failed to state a claim.
