leaks and future mold
20 Sep 2021
Similar to billolive I also live in a condo in CA and had a leak from my toilet shut off valve that dripped back into and down the cavity wall onto my neighbors bedroom ceiling. I stopped the leak, but now there is a faint water mark on her ceiling. I offerd to repaint, but she is worried about future molding and wants to cut holes in the ceiling to make sure it's dry. Should I cut holes and have someone look at it or am I opening up a can of worms by doing so? Would I be responsible for future molding? It is my understanding that there have been other leaks in this womans unit that have been repaired.
