  • “Often, the condominium board doesn’t really appreciate how bad the problem is and what risks are associated with it,” Mackey tells AdvocateDaily.com.

    She says hoarding typically comes to light as the result of a pest infestation or a plumbing issue.

    “We may get reports of pests or leaks coming from a unit,” says Mackey, a partner with Shibley Righton LLP.

    “If it’s reported as a plumbing issue, the plumber may refuse to go into the unit because he or she discovers there is a hoarding problem,” she says.

    “For most condos, the annual fire inspection is a good way to keep an eye out for hoarding.”
