Hurricane Ian Update - 5/23/23

"Our attorneys at Merlin Law Group have notified our insurance carrier, Heritage, that they now represent our association in the pending Hurricane Ian insurance claim.  In Merlin's letter of representation, they demanded Heritage provide a copy of their documents with respect to their investigation thus far.  In response, Heritage provided a copy of their estimated damages per each building and also advised that they will be issuing  a check in the actual cash value (ACV) amount of $595,621.37, after subtracting deductible, and depreciation.  Our attorneys at Merlin Law Group are in the process of gathering and reviewing the evidence obtained and documented by Triton in order to submit a demand for full payment of our claim .  We anticipate it will take several months for the information to be reviewed, exchanged with Heritage, and then reviewed by Heritage before a meeting can take place to discuss final settlement of the claim.  We will keep you updated as the case progresses."

(statement per Merlin Law Group)

Our law firm, Merlin, has requested documents verifying our legal establishment, By-Laws, Rules and all evidence of damage and related costs so far from Hurricane Ian.  We are gathering this information and sending it to Merlin.  This information will be part of Merlin's presentation to our insurance company, Heritage, to get us our funds.  We will keep you posted as we are informed.

Hurricane Ian Update - 10/2/23

The roofing contractor is currently removing the shingles, roofing underlayment paper and decking from buildings 800 & 1000. 

The new 5/8" decking and waterproof roofing underlayment paper have been installed on buildings 1200, 1500, 1800, 1900 and 2000.  Waiting for dry inspection.

The following buildings have been shingled and are awaiting final inspection from Charlotte County: 1100, 1300, 1400 and 1600.

Buildings 400, 500, and 1700 have been completed and passed both inspections.

If you are coming to Lakeside during this time, be sure to bring your patience since it's a construction site.  Also, it is noisy whether it is your building or one nearby. (
