HOA | Condo Board Responsibilities and Education, HOA | Condo Homeowner Responsibilities & Education, HOA | Condo Insurance

HOA or Condo associations have a duty of ordinary and reasonable care. If a person is walking in a communal space, whether it be a community pool, clubhouse, park or on the sidewalk, liability can fall on the association. Members of the community association board should be aware of the risks and liabilities in their communities. 

Most importantly, while this article is intended to give you some ideas of the ways that your community association could be liable it SHOULD NOT replace or supersede any information given to you by your associations attorney or licensed insurance specialist. Laws vary between states and counties regarding liability so it is something you should discuss with those licensed in your area to make sure that your coverage is adequate.
