I've had some pipe issues in my condo rental in Fairfax and I can't get the HOA/mgt. company's prop. mgr. to return my calls. Today my neighbor (owner/landlord) called to say there's a leak in his drywall in a wall that borders my unit. He said it's right below the automatic fire sprinkler and it's possible his tenant hit it while moving in the other day. My tenant said his master bath's bathtub faucet is leaking when he has the shower on and the shower head's pressure is getting weak. He sent me a photo of it with the faucet cover pulled forward and it really looks like it's just a bad seal well forward of the wall and would be an easy fix. This tenant couldn't change a lightbulb on his own. The soonest my handyman can get there is tomorrow night.

My understanding is that I am responsible for exposed pipes in the airspace inside my unit. For example, the pipes in the cabinet underneath the kitchen sink and the exposed pipes coming from the hot water heater closet. But the HOA is respsonsible for pipes inside the drywall and those running between units. Is this correct? I don't have a copy of the CCRs with me to look this up and, again, I can't get the prop. mgr. to call me back.

The neighbor wants to call a plumber today and I'm sure that's gonna cost $$ on a Sunday. If it's found to be coming from my unit, who pays? The HOA mgt. co. or me?
