Your HOA board and management company will know the answer to your question. The Trulia contributors can only guess.

They are not responsible for your own lock just the function of the entire box

Hi Nenepal,

@John is right, we can only guess. Only management of those buildings can answer your question.

Repairs and upkeep to the common areas are usually covered by the condo association. That's part of what your monthly fees cover. If the repairs are due to a storm, or damage caused by a vehicle etc, perhaps the condo insurance will provide coverage for the repair.

Hello Nenepal,

Unless it is otherwise specified in the condo's bylaws, they association should be responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the common areas. Contact your HOA representative to report teh broken mailbox. If he maintenance company is offsite they may not be aware it is broken.

Good Luck

I would say the Association should be taking care of that since you basically own you're inner walls only. Allan
