Condominium Fire

New Haven, CT: (Mar-20-08) Robert Tracey and Claudette Walker brought charges against Warner Village Condominium Association and the property's managing agent, Peter Lathouris, alleging that their condominium was uninhabitable as the result of a fire. They claimed that they were still being charged mortgage payments and property taxes, for a place in which they could not live, because repairs had not been completed. Their civil suit, filed in New Haven Superior Court, stated that the couple had paid about $90,000 over the past decade. The defendants claimed that they had made every effort to repair the condominium. The two sides came to a consensus that the dispute stemmed from a misunderstanding that occurred between the defendant's attorney and the plaintiff's first attorney. The couple then hired a new attorney in 2002.

As part of a settlement reached, Tracey and Walker's first attorney will pay them $45,000, and Warner Village Condominium Association and Lathouris will pay $40,000. Following that, Lathouris and his wife would then assume the mortgage on the condominium at 137 Cherry Ann Lane, Hamden, not to exceed $50,000, resolving the lawsuit.
