How to get HOA/management prop to fix water leak fast and for good?
I bought an office unit few years ago, and every year when we get large rain storm, i have water leaking into this office floor. It coming through the foundations so it is the HOA responsibility, i had to chase them for a year until they sent someone to put some liquid concrete and foam in the cracks between floor and walls outside last October.
It hold all winter (as far as i can tell because it can leak under the carpet and be unnoticeable)
This morning i got a call that it happened again, water leaked half way through floor (carpet is wet up to 6 feet away from the wall/leaking source)
What can i do to force the HOA to fix this issue for good, I assume it there need to be redesign of the guttering system, reinforce retaining walls and seal building foundations.
Also, because it takes a while to get a hold of them, I need to lose work vacuuming the water out of the unit, and the office is hard to work from for few days after due to big and loud fans on all the time. can I charge the HOA for these loses, or at least threat them I will withhold payments until it is completely fixed forever and not just a quick bandage fix.
Thank you for your help and advise!
