On November 29, 2018, the Mold Lawyers from Militzok & Associates won the entry of a temporary injunction against the Jamaica House Condominium Association in the 17th Judicial Circuit of Broward County, Florida after the Association repeatedly refused to perform destructive testing at the request of our client, the unit owner. The unit owner alleged that water was intruding from the outer perimeter of his condominium unit and had requested the association investigate the source of the water. After the Association refused to open up the necessary areas of drywall and ceiling which are considered to be part of the common elements belonging to the Condo Association, the unit owner was forced to bring suit and move for a temporary injunction. Having proven that the water did not originate from within the perimeter of the unit owner’s unit, the Court ruled that it was necessary for the condo association to undertake the necessary investigation to determine the source of the water. The court’s ruling re-enforces the legal concept that condo associations are responsible for maintaining the ceilings and drywall contained within a condominium unit provided that the source of the water originated from outside the perimeter of the unit.
