“Dear PoP,

I purchased a condo unit in the last year that is still under warranty. I sustained a significant amount of damage during the January snow storm that was determined to be caused by the original work or lack there of by the developer.I have notified the developer and the building management company via certified mail of the damage.

The building management company has been communicating with the developer on my behalf — even though I never delegated that responsibility. In fact the developer never responded directly to me to address my certified letter.

I need to hire an attorney who is familiar with the nuances of DC real estate law and the condominium code. Do your readers have any recommendations?”

I’m just curious – is it possible that the building management company can resolve the situation? Anyone deal with a situation like this before? If not, anyone know of a good lawyer for a situation like this?
