But, make sure that is what you want to do. And above all else, you must act yesterday. If your condo just began leaking, contact a plumber to mitigate any further damage (which you may have a legal duty to do) but, do not wait to contact an attorney. Doing so, may indicate acceptance of the condo, even though there is an apparent defect and judging from the tone of your post, that's the last thing you want to do.
The above does not constitute legal advice, I am not an attorney, and it represents my opinion only. ;-)
Best and good luck. Let us know how it turns out. You can find some excellent attorneys by going to the website Martindale Hubble at Martindale.com.
What has your agent said regarding this situation? As Realtors, we do not provide legal advice. You will need assistance from an attorney. If the seller did not disclose material facts regarding the property, you may have cause to seek damages.

It is my understanding that the roof is the responsibility of the HOA to maintain. If it is the roof, this should be addressed at one of the homeowner meetings and repaired. If the leak is actually in the plumbing, in the walls..that is also an HOA situation. Unfortunately, if you cannot get any real help your only recourse is to seek legal advice.
