Foreclosure in Denver>Question Details

abednegoh, Home Buyer in Denver, CO

I posted a Question earlier and got some fantastic response, but I still need help. I've done everything, but HOA refuse to cooperate.

Asked by abednegoh, Denver, CO Wed May 15, 2013

I bought a property through REO sale on the top unit of my building. The inspection showed that leaks in the roof caused drywall damage in my unit. My agent contacted the HOA prior to closing and they said they'd review the damages to determine if it's something that they can cover. I closed on the property last April, and have been chasing the HOA to get the drywall fixed ever since. At one point, they said they'd repaired the damages, but now changed their mind because they're saying that the damages occurred prior to me purchasing the unit, even though I started working with them before I bought the unit. This has caused me considerable distress as I have mentioned in countless emails to them, but there's absolutely nothing I can do to get them to repair the unit. I saved all my communications with them – including the one where they said they’d repair the damages. Is there an attorney out there that can do a free or cheap consultation to see if I have a case against them? T

Yes, Oliver is best, but not cheap. have your agent contact the Realtor hot line (no charge). Also, HindmanSanchez would be less costly if they're not the attorney of record for your building.

unfortunately, your agent has liability here. If you don't want to go that direction, call Oliver Franscona (attorney). Look him up on the internet.

Thanks Sean. I visited his website, but I appears that he represents HOAs, not the other way around. I'll give it one more look.
