Washington Appeals Court Panel Finds Association’s Defects Suit Timely

Mealey's (May 16, 2018, 8:56 AM EDT) -- SEATTLE — A trial court judge’s ruling awarding summary judgment to a developer’s successor based on the statute of limitations was reversed May 14 by a Washington appeals panel that found that a condominium association’s lawsuit under the Washington Condominium Act (WCA) was filed within the four-year statute of limitations because the declarant controlled the association until 2014 (Burien Town Square Condominium Association v. Burien Town Square Parcel 1 LLC, et al., No. 76502-7-I, Wash. App., 1st Div., 2018 Wash. App. LEXIS 1137).
