Water Damage And Negligence

Article Summary: 

Water damage can occur due to activities within a home beyond anyone's control, and residents are responsible for events in their home affecting common areas and other units. In 2018, a leak from a bathroom toilet tank caused damage to the unit and lower-level hallways. The owner argued there was no lawful right to charge back the repair cost, but the court ruled that an unforeseen incident does not absolve a unit owner from financial responsibility for repair costs. In-home water detection systems can identify leaks sooner, minimizing damage and repair costs while reducing insurance costs.
