Lakeshore Maintenance Responsibilities

This Chart and the titles and headings used herein are not intended to describe or encompass all maintenance functions nor to delineate all respective responsibilities between the Unit Owners, severally, and Association. The placement of responsibility under any specific column does not always accurately reflect the precise character and nature of ownership. The appropriate sections of the declaration determines ownership.

Column I: Items. Items appearing in this column are illustrative and not exhaustive.
Column II: General Common Elements Under Unit Owners Association Responsibility. Responsibility for determining and providing for the maintenance repair and replacement requirements of the General Common Elements and detraining the costs thereof shall be primarily the responsibility of the Board of Directors and such designees to which in may delegate certain such responsibilities.
Column III: Limited Common Elements Under Unit Owners Association Responsibility.  Responsibility for determining the maintenance, repair and replacement requirements of the Limited Common Elements shall be a shared responsibility between the Board of Directors and the Unit Owner of a Unit to which a specific Limited Common Element is exclusively apparent, provided, however, that the Board shall have the final responsibility for determining the need for and accomplishing such maintenance, repair, and replacement activities.
Column IV: Unit Components Under Unit Owners Association Responsibility.  The Items in this column are legally and by definition a part of a Unit but are attached or directly connected to or associated with the General Common Elements and Common Expense items in such a way that a clear distinction between Unit Owner and Association responsibility cannot be made. However, such items frequently involve matters of concern relative to the general health, safety, and welfare of all of the occupants of the building.  Thus, certain cost which appear to benefit a single Unit Owner but which affect other Unit Owners are declared a Common Expense, especially when correct functioning of an activity or element in integral to or supportive of the legally defined Common Elements and Common Expense.
Column V: Certain Other Components Under Unit Owner’s Responsibility Without Respect to Ownership of the Component.  The items in this column are not intended to be exclusive and all-encompassing and do not affect responsibilities otherwise expressly provided for.
