The Bouncy House-Invitation to Liability

Residents in community associations often behave as if they still reside in single family homes. They tend to forget that liability exposures created through their personal activities will affect others. A perfect example is when a unit owner asks permission from the property manager or board of directors to rent a bouncy house for their child’s birthday party or similar event.  The bouncy house, also known as a moonwalk, is an inflatable device rented from a local firm. Similar devices include wet ‘n’ wild slides, dry slides, obstacle courses and interactive games. Sometimes several devices can be ordered. The dimensions are often 15’ X 15?. The rental is typically 4 hours at a cost of $200 to $450. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?    Read the article………….
