"Ask the Expert"
Q. We have a 3 unit condominium. The roof leaked last summer due to poor workmanship. The third floor was trying to sell their unit so they painted over the stain, but it eventually got worse and they told the board about the leak because it crumbled their walls.
The property manager and my neighbor refuse to repair plumbing problems that are causing damage to my unit. What can I do?
Q. In hopes of selling or renting our condo, for health and financial reasons, last October my mother and I moved from Chicago to an apartment in Springfield. Prior to my moving, I saw water damage to my bathroom ceiling. Our plumber cited a possible leak from the neighbor above our unit and an improper gasket connecting pipes between our floors that he attempted to tighten.
Q. I recently purchased a property this year and I feel my taxes are extremely high for the area. What are my chances to appeal my taxes as individual than as a collective association. Also, if appealed as an association using a lawyer,what is the average cost?
