Car park door remote responsibility?

5 Replies

I just bought a condo, it has a common car park for cars parking, this condo has two parking spots. After the closing, I am given the mailbox key, main door keys and two garage door opener. But one of the garage door opener is not working properly and has broken clips. Is the seller responsible for the broken garage door opener? Thanks. 

No. They gave you one working one. If you want another you’ll just need to buy it. Perhaps if there was something in the purchase contract that specifically stated they were to provide two working remotes (not likely), then you may be able to get them to cover the cost. But even then it’s not worth the time/effort. Just buy one. They’re not expensive. 

There are two car parking space, so two remote suppose for two cars, one for each. So one of them is broken. So I cannot ask seller to provide a good working one?

I would check with your real estate agent. He or she should be able to advise you about if u are entitled to having two working ones and then follow up accordingly. Involving a lawyer would not be worth the expense.
