Unresponsive Condo Management Company
I have a neighbor living on the 3rd floor of my condo building, I live on the first floor. She recently purchased a washing machine and has been using her sink drain pipe. When the water and debri run through the common element (drain pipe) it backflows into my bathroom with suds and debris coming from my toilet bowl. The condo management has not resolved the problem since October 2003 and it is now January 2004. As of this past Wed, we had a board meeting and in the board meeting they said they will have to get legal advise as to who is responsible in handling the problem with the neighbor.. possibly another two weeks before they tell me what the decision is. The board said the plumbers checked the piping system and all is ok,, no blockages. They think that I should be the person to contact the neighbor and sue her for misuse of the piping system. I don't think this is right... I have no business telling a resident of how they should use their plumbing,, in this case it is affecting my place and causing major water dammage but they are using the common element. Should't the board and managing company be responsible?
