Does a board have to submit a claim to their insurance when damage has been caused by appliance in owners unit
we live in a bare land condo consisting of duplex units. An owner had a leak in his fridge water line damaging the flooring. It appears under the new condo act that the corporation insurance must be first involved. This does not make sense to me. I understood that damage within the interior walls caused by your appliance is your responsibility. Should this not be the owners insurance claim? Why does it have to go thru the board insurance first? That deductible is more than the repair quote so the board would be paying out of operating budget. Can the board pass a motion to charge the cost of repairs back to the owner?
