After 29 years of writing ICT contracts and 29 years as an ICT owner, it is difficult to say whether, over the years, I have learned more from the feedback from my clients and their brokers, or from my experience with the eight ICTs I have personally participated in, but I can say with certainty that each day brings new knowledge and ideas how to manage ICT and improve ICT contracts. The gradual evolution of our ICT agreements continues every week as we make small changes to adapt to the latest cycle of unforeseen events and new issues. But from time to time, we rework the basic agreement models tic from scratch and we make fundamental structural and organizational changes that cannot be dealt with gradually. We have gone through this process over the past eight months and are now proud to announce the “next generation” ICT agreements. In this article, I will describe some of the most important changes and problems we encountered when they were created. Property damage in condominiums and tic buildings has always raised complex problems, especially when a presence in a dwelling (. B for example, a smoked hose) causes damage to another person or when a common area failure (for example. B a roof leak) causes damage to one or more units. Recent developments in the insurance world, such as rising premiums and the tendency of insurers to raise rates based on the number of receivables submitted, have only increased this complexity.
Our next-generation ICT agreements offer much more detail and instruction on damage liability and insurance. These agreements are more explicit, for example, when an owner is responsible for the damage done to another owner`s unit and the group is responsible for the damage caused inside the dwelling and how that liability is compromised when a high-quality object, such as. B works of art or expensive electronics, is damaged. Similarly, these agreements define the elements and elements of the building insured by the Group and the property and elements that insure the individual owners and limit the right of each owner to assert rights against the group or another owner if the first owner has suffered a loss because he does not have sufficient insurance. This agreement has nothing to do with the deed, map or any other document recorded in the county data. It is a legal contract between you and the other owners of the building. SirkinLaw APC has prepared nearly 3,000 ICT-based occupancy agreements for real estate of all sizes and types and continues to support most of these transactions in California. This unparalleled level of experience allows us to offer proven approaches to the vast majority of condominium situations, quickly and efficiently solve problems, and create clear, easy-to-navigate and read documents that can be applied efficiently and cheaply. We improve our documents every month when we encounter new situations and learn the best results from ICT agreements in the real world. We also share our accumulated knowledge and support real estate professionals and the ICT community by constantly publishing new articles on our website and offering free training workshops. Another important issue addressed in the next-generation ICT agreements is the decision-making process for claims against the group`s policy. Often, homeowners are torn between the desire to collect insurance income for an insured loss and the reluctance to raise premiums and trigger policy termination.
The new generation agreements specify when a right is filed and how the loss is awarded in the absence of a claim. It also describes how insurance deductions are shared, a problem that can be particularly problematic when the damage extends over multiple units and a common area and covers both individual and group directives. It turns out that about 95% of ICT groups are well understood and never need to use their ICT agreement. the others
