Negotiated Settlement with Homeowner’s Association Regarding Roof Damage


An owner of residential condominium that sustained damage due to a leaking roof hired Julie Nagorski to represent her in claims against the homeowners association to recover her damages.  The client had found herself an “accidental landlord” when she combined homes with her new husband and the market prevented her from selling her condo, forcing her to rent it.  Shortly after the tenant moved in, a roof leak damaged the home and the tenant’s personal property and the client quickly engaged a contractor to repair the home.  The association claimed that the source of the leak was the client’s responsibility.  On behalf of the client, Julie negotiated a settlement with the association for monetary damages and repair of the roof.
