If you live in a condo and experience mold and water damage, you should consult a Florida condo lawyer immediately. Mold and water damage are serious issues, and you need good representation to protect your interests. Here are reasons that engaging the services of a lawyer experienced in representing individual condo owners is a wise decision.
If water and mold damage occur, it’s important to establish who is responsible. Water damage leading to mold growth is costly to repair. You can’t just assume things will work out according to what’s right. You need a lawyer who will do the research and establish the case for who is responsible.
You might assume that your condo owners’ association will work in your best interests. After all, you are a member of the association. Unfortunately, an assumption like that can be a mistake. Your association may try to limit its liability and work for the collective good rather than for your individual good. Having your own representation is best for you.
Insurance companies will try to limit their payout costs. Never sign a settlement agreement until you have your own Florida condo attorney review the details. If you sign without your own attorney reviewing the settlement, you could end up shortchanged with regard to the final outcome.
The costs related to water and mold damage may not be all apparent at first. Toxic mold can lead to health problems. If health issues develop due to the mold, you’ll want an attorney who can seek compensation for those related issues as well.
If you retain an attorney for water and mold damage, find one who is experienced in this type of law practice. Law is a highly complicated matter. An attorney who spends his days in a non-related practice of law may not be familiar with all of the intricacies of law related to condominium ownership.
You’ve invested a lot in the ownership of your condominium. If water and mold damage occur, retain the services of a lawyer who is experienced in Florida condo law. If you find yourself in this situation, contact the LAW OFFICES OF HERB M. MILGRIM, P.A. for a no-obligation consultation.
