Q: Can we sue a property manager for not following through with a property following an eviction, result significant damage
I am an out if state owner that the property managers evicted a tenant and did not follow through with maintenance of the property resulting in bursting of pipes and significant damage during cold weather. Management is aware we are out of state and also recently went through a detrimental hurricane in September rendering us homeless. Insurance will not pay because they said electric was not on since October-which we were unaware that there was no electric.
A: That is a suit by you against your own management co. General Sessions might be available. You will have the burden of proving Breach of Contract resulting in Damages.
