One unit out of 162 units in our complex has lost the railing and screening of their lanai due to hurricane Irma. It is located on the second floor and is completely open to the ground below. They tell me it's going to be a while before a professional screening company shows up to install railings and screening. Yesterday, I noticed the daughter of the owner out there on a ladder installing shelf's on the lanai. One little slip up on the ladder and she would have fell 2 stories. I have alerted my management company that they have to take immediate action to some how cordon off the opening to the ground below to prevent any fall accidents. Also, I have asked them to put the owner on formal written notice that no one is to step out onto that lanai until such time as it can somehow secured so NO ONE will fall off. What are your thoughts? What about the legal obligation(s) of the Board and the management company to take action to this situation. Thanks so much, Bob
