Legalities of Condo Damage

Updated: Sep 3

06/14/19 – Condominium law in Oregon (and elsewhere) has at least one puzzling feature: if no unit owner can be identified as the cause of damage to another unit, then the costs of repair fall upon the owner of the damaged property. The long and short of this is — even when the cause stems from a common element, the condo association is not responsible.

More than one incident of damage in The Vaux's history has put this legal head-scratcher to the test, so be sure your personal insurance has a deductible that will make you comfortable when bad things happen.
