Does this gutter issue need to be fixed?


I live in a condo, and about a year and a half ago a new roof was put on and new gutters were installed too.
One thing I happened to notice, that I don't particularly like, is that when it rains, there is a tendency of water to drip down from between the gutter and fascia board in one section. I don't think the gutter is clogged and there is no ice dam. I suspect there is just something about the way this gutter was installed (or maybe the roof) that causes water to drip between the fascia board and gutter rather than the water going just into the gutter. There supposedly is an ice shield on the new roof.
It's not a large quantity of water, but the dripping happening to a small degree even when it rains lightly. It only happens in one section, which is several feet long and happens to be above the bay window, which concerns me because I don't want this to turn into an issue where water leaks into the bay window.
Today there is melting snow on the roof, but, there is no snow on the roof near the gutters, and no ice dam, but there is water dripping between the gutter and fascia board.
Is this something that needs to be reported to the management company or is it something that can be left as is?
Thanks,
J.

To clarify, water in that roughly 4 foot long section drips slowly between the gutter and fascia board if it's raining lightly or if snow above is melting. I *suspect* it's not due to a clog (since it always does this even after they cleaned out gutters). I *suspect* it's something about the way the roof or gutter was installed. When I look up at the gutter from outside the condo, the gutter does *appear* to be flush with the fascia board though.
If it rains really hard then the dripping can turn into "sprinkling" but it's not anywhere near a tremendous amount of water such as when a gutter is clogged and spills over.
This is happening above a bay window. Do I need to have this fixed or can it be left as is?
Thanks,
J.

I'd have it fixed - I had something similar that really caused some problems. It was the outward sign of failure of a drip edge - water was getting into the soffit box over a porch and flowing toward the outer walls. The moisture problem led to some warping and carpenter ants set in there (the nest was exposed and ripped off during re-roofing.
It could be drip edge, rotted fascia boards allowing the gutter to tilt, any number of things. But fix it.

(snip) when it rains, there is a tendency of water to drip down from between the gutter

I agree this should be fixed, as it can lead to rot along the fascia, and further down the wall, behind the stucco, brick, or siding. Could be (1) a twisted gutter, due to loading or ladders or other damage, so that the inner gutter edge is lower than it should be. Could also be due to (2) clogging in the downspout pipe or the downstream gutter, or a combination of of 1. and 2. Either way, should be repaired. Might be as simple as cleaning the gutters, downspouts, and releveling the gutter, or reattaching the back of it to the roof or fascia. Roger

You are paying a hefty price to not have to worry about stuff like this. Report it in writing and keep a copy.
If you were a LOL and this was your private home I would engage in a discussion with you about it.
There wasn't that easy.
