Contracts : Condominium Construction – Standing – Third-Party Beneficiary

Where plaintiffs, who owned three units at a condominium complex, brought a breach of contract action against contractors who performed brickwork at the complex, nothing in the contract between the condominium association and the contractors indicated an intent for the contractors to assume a direct obligation to anyone other than the association, and the trial court properly found that the plaintiffs lacked standing because they were not a party to or a third-party beneficiary of the contract.

Judgment is affirmed as modified.
