Need more information. 

Are they personally owned basements or foundations under condos?

Was the damage the Homeowners Association responsibility or the responsibility 
of the owner?

We try to determine the cause of the damage and that usually tells us if it 
happened because of something the Association is responsible for or the 
homeowner is responsible for. The Condominium Declaration outlines who is 
responsible for what.
