What Can I Do if My HOA is Not Making Necessary Repairs to My Townhome?

“My HOA is responsible for any repairs or problems of the exterior of my townhome, for almost 3 years now I have been trying to get them to make repairs to my townhome so that moisture will not continue to come into my basement each time it rains or snows, what shall I do since they have not done anything? I have gotten an attorney involved and sent a letter to the HOA company and also made a couple of calls to the company they told the attorney on the phone that someone would be coming to my home in days, they sent out a tech 10 business days later just to bid for the repairs and that was 3 weeks ago. No action since.”

You’ve already done what would be my primary suggestion, which is to consult with a local attorney. That attorney should be able to tell you if their response is reasonable under all the circumstances, and if not then what your other options are. These frequently differ depending on your HOA organizing documents, so someone who has reviewed them would be in the best position to advise you. Bottom line, though, if your HOA is obligated to make repairs, there will be some procedure for enforcing that obligation.
