Condo building water damage, black mold - who's responsible for repairs?

Posted on Wed, Jul 14, 2010 @ 11:00 AM

I own condo in North Carolina. On June 13, we went for vacation and discovered water damage to a closet and bathroom ceiling. Upon further investigation black mold was found in our air conditioning area, laundry facilities, and kitchen these areas are all connected by walls. In my kitchen there is a cracking ceiling and bottom cabinets were warping. All areas are covered in mold. I contacted my condo association and their management company came out to view the next day. Their plumber said he fixed a leak from the above condo's air conditioning but would not comment on the other damage. The building manager for the association told me that they would be taking care of the repairs. After several attempts to contact and find out what is going on about repairs because I live in another state I was told on Friday the 9th that they were not doing any work per President of condo board of directors. I tried to contact her and received email stating she was meeting with the board on Monday and they would make a decision and soon as humanly possible. I have not heard from them yet. Who is responsible for repairs the unit above or the association? Any help would be appreciated and suggestion of who to approach next. My unit has sat for a month without repairs.
