Post Loss Obligations of the Policyholder - Condominium Boards Need to Communicate

This 42 page decision Biscayne Cove Condominium Association, Inc. v. QBE Ins. Corp., 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 5194 (S.D. Fla. Jan. 14, 2013) makes for some very interesting reading. The case was one of those late blooming Hurricane Wilma condo claims that I suspect contributed to the thinking that a change in law regarding the time a policyholder has to file a claim might be a good idea. You can draw your own conclusions about what went on in this case (I know I have) but one of the clear take-aways is that in this case the Judge was not buying what was being sold.

As an aside, the 30% rule this public adjuster was relying on and thought existed drew some chuckles in a meeting our firm recently attended with a group of condo lawyers. Seriously, there are some very interesting points made in the Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law. As the old saying goes; “it’s not my monkey and it’s not my circus” thankfully!
