I was under the impression that under the Florida Condo Statute maintenance and repair of common elements including limited common elements were always the responsibility of the association, but my condo’s declaration says that the owner is responsible for the repair, maintenance and replacement of its limited common elements. My question is if the association can do that in its declaration, or is there something in the Florida Condo Statute that trumps the declaration?

Our board has always required vendors to provide proof of insurance before providing services at the association. There is a push now to require all owners to likewise obtain proof of insurance before allowing their vendors to perform work at the property. Why would we do this?

We recently discovered that the air handler drain in the unit above us became clogged resulting in water damage to our unit. Our insurance covered some of the costs, but not all. We were not in the unit when this occurred and it was some time before we discovered it, resulting in mold. Would our condominium association be responsible for the uncovered damage?
