HOA is responsible for exteriors repairs and maintenance (roofing, siding, stucco, mowing, snow removal). The cedar shingle siding on the front of our condo has rotted out and the condo association claims that the repair( possibly $ 200.00) has to be approved by the board. In Ohio, are condo associations required by law to keep an escrow account for emergencies and small repairs. We are trying to sell and a prospective buyer has questioned the efforts of the association, which may keep them from making an offer/buying.. We have made numerous requests for these repairs in the past weeks. The association officers are very non responsive and evasive. Are there legal techniques that we can apply to force the association into action, and, can they be held liable for our loss, if in fact, the potential buyer specifies that this is the cause of them not buying?
