Do I have to pay for the damage to the HOA Property or does the builder who made the mistake? 3 Answers as of May 15, 2015

One of the builders for a complex we own ended up not doing his job correctly. The problem was part of the sink was not caulked correctly so water got into the sheer wall (our property) and also on the wall behind that (HOA property).

You will probably have to pay the HOA because you contracted with the contractor, but go after the contractor too for everything. If he's licensed file a claim with the CSLB and with his license bond. Look on the CSLB web site for his information.

A builder is liable for damages for sub standard construction. There is a 4 years statute of limitations (SOL) for patent construction defects and 10 year SOL for latent construction defects.

You as owner are responsible but you can sink reimbursement from the person who actually did the damage.
