Is HOA responsible for damage to home caused by poor drainage in common area?
Question Details: We live in a townhouse, 5 homes in the row. We also live on a hill and every time it rains our backyard floods, 4-6 inches standing water. The majority of the water is coming off the hill which is maintained by the HOA, it is common area. Well this water found its way into our home, caused $5,000 worth of damage. I want the HOA to install french drain at base of hill. Is this a reasonable request since the hill is the problem and it is common area. FYI, all the homes in the row have standing water when it rains. The HOA wants to pick up only 25% of the cost .
