Property Owners Guide to Preventing and Responding to Water Damage Resulting From Plumbing Failures
Recent History: Kaimala Marina has consistently maintained property insurance in accordance with applicable statutes while balancing responsibility and cost to the Association. Individual owners were held responsible for the damages to their areas and the AOAO focused in insuring defined common areas and the parts of the property that were not the control of an individual homeowner. This included holding individual homeowners responsible for damage to adjacent units when a failure in their unit caused the damage, the most common situations arising from issues with plumbing. This practice by the AOAO minimized the claims made against the Association’s property insurance and helped to keep the premiums from escalating. It is necessary to modify this practice in order to comply with Hawaii’s condominium statute [both HRS §514A and §514B].
