My question involves a condominium located in the State of: Florida
A few months ago my plumber found the cause of my plumbing problems was actually a tree root through my pipe under the building. After a while, my association’s management company called me and said that due to the location of the break and that it has not yet joined the next unit, the pipe only serves my unit and is my responsibility to repair.
I read my condo docs and they define something that serves only one unit as a limited common element and my condo docs say that all common elements and limited common elements are repaired and maintained by the association.
When I went to the management company with this information, they said that plumbing is not a limited common element and the pipe serving only my unit is “my property” as they explained it.
I put a claim into my insurance company but the explained I am not covered for this however the building’s master policy should cover it even if the pipe only serves my unit exclusively.
I don’t know where to go next, or how to prove what defines a limited common element.
Any help is appreciated.
