It all depends.

Depending on the insurance policy you carry on your personal property, and depending on the insurance carried by the association and the insurance carried by the roofer, there would be some number of possibilities for who ultimately pays.

If I were you, I'd document the loss of my personal property and include photos. I'd verify the association's insurance coverage (carrier name, policy # if available) and the roofer's insurance coverage (carrier name, policy # if available).

Then I would file a claim with my insurance carrier and pass the other coverage details along with the claim and let my carrier decide who should pay.

Can i hold tenant association responsible for my condo being burglarized?

'Tenant association' is uncommon, unless you mean a rental agency who found the tenant who occupied your condominium when it was burglarized. If you believe that the tenant was involved with the burglar, then you can notify the agency and review your agreement with them to discover any recourse you may have in this case. As an owner, unless your personal property was taken, you may have no claim for loss. However, you may have repair costs, such as door locks, windows and so forth, if entry was gained forcefully. Review the police report with your board or property manager, and determine which insurance policy covers this damage: the association's master policy or your HO-6 policy. If the association is responsible for the 'security' of the property, the police report can help the association determine how security was breached in order for the burglary to occur. If the association's security failed, you may have recourse against it.

Is condominium Homeowners Association responsible for personal property when water damage occurs?

Two issues arise here: repair/ replacement and payment for water damage. One can assume that the personal property involved in the water damage event was located inside your unit, or inside your assigned storage area. Properly, personal insurance covers these personal items. You are well advised to photograph the damage, research your archives for original purchase receipts -- to verify their values, and be prepared to complete a claim. Your personal insurance broker can advise you about how to proceed. Best practices dictate that the association's master policy become involved, since common areas are most often involved in water damage events. Once the source of the water is identified: another owner's plumbing, window, association owned roof, whatever -- then the policy covering the responsible party pays for damages. Once the insurance companies identify responsibility for the source of the water intrusion, payment is finalized for appropriately documented damages and repairs.

Why parent teacher and community association change to parent teacher association?

The name was changed simply as Parents Teachers Association to avoid confusion. The former has broader connotation that the term "community" has so encroached into the academe. It therefore necessitated to go back to the basic as parents and teachers involvement alone. One reason of course of this change is the politicizing of people representing the community sector, even going beyond personal concern over the association. Some are taking undue advantage of their positions to influence the running of school matters, to the detriment of the very people in the association.

Are condominium conditions covenants and restrictions declarations more stringent than regulations for cooperatives?

Each and every multi-family ownership scheme community has different CC&Rs, because each and every community is unique in its composition, locale and age. Because you can usually secure a loan against a title to a condominium unit, and banks are less likely to loan money for ownership of shares of a housing co-operative, one can assume that a major difference between the two schemes is the personal financial health of the prospective buyer. In addition, a review by the board of your application for ownership is common in co-operatives; no such review is usually conducted by a board of a condominium association. It's a good idea to review any CC&Rs for any property you plan to buy, with a principal check of its guidelines visa-vis your chosen life style.
