leaks, Electric, Rentals,and bad Installers

Electricity– the electric in the building went off sometime Friday afternoon. Get an electric clock and you can see how many times this happens

Rentals: I count about 20 rentals in the building. Those are the ones we know about. If there are 8 more we are 20 percent rental. This is concerning.

Kitchen redo: Someone put in new appliances in their kitchen and the installer did not put the dishwasher in correctly. Thus a flood to the downstairs apt. I thought Frank was diligent to only allow licensed and registered workers in the office people that handle plumbing or other harmful deeds?

Lastly: The owner of 807 went to bed with the faucet running in the kitchen. It was discovered the next morning by her housekeeper. The water was throughout her wall to wall carpet and almost reaching her bedroom. The office was called and Frank has a relationship with a restoration service that came right over to start the sponging of the water. This owner is a senior and not well and it seems has no family. She has someone that comes in during the day but no one at night.

Apt 707 got up and her dining room ceiling was a waterfall. She has beautiful wood floors that were awash with water. She was lucky that the ceiling did not collapse. I must say she was very calm throughout this horrible incident. Better than I would be. The restorer was already working in her apt when I saw it.

Apt 607 had similar damage but I did not see her apt.

The lesson is two fold. I know that the two upper apts have insurance and their companies did come. I do not know about 607. The second lesson is there are people that need care in the evenings and should not be left alone. Families or friends should be contacted and these people need to be cared for.

After this which will cost tens of thousands of dollars do you think we need a home insurance mandate?

Lastly I was told, our hallways which are not the concern of condo owners insurance companies and restoration companies are full of mold.

Leaks

On Saturday morning Feb 18 2017 there was an leak in unit 304 that went through #204 into #104. It seems that #304 installed a dishwasher yesterday and it was not properly hooked up and that caused the leak. Unfortunately there was only one service person on board. We should be very grateful to our three service men that have to contend with these leaks. Oscar was summoned on his day off to help. So here we are with an installer…was he licensed and insured?
