If I have water damage, from a burst pipe, in my unit, who is responsble for repairing it?
Generally speaking, unit owners are responsible for the maintenance and repair of all items and fixtures found inside their units. As for the burst pipe itself, it depends on whether it is specific to a single unit or if it is shared or a common element. It is best to refer to your condo’s governing documents to understand who bears responsibility for the repairs. If the condo is responsible, the condo’s master insurance policy should be able to help cover the repair costs. If the unit owner is responsible, the unit owner’s individual insurance policy might be able to help cover it.
