Ontario’s Condominium Act Review is a three-stage collaborative, public engagement process aimed at modernizing the Condominium Act.
If you browse through the site linked above and its related pages you’ll find an interesting theme. Choosing a condo as your home means much more than simply finding a different place to hang your hat. A successful condominium is where residents know one another and care for their community.
Comments on the Stage One Report, which highlighted the major areas of concern to be addressed in the re-vamping of the Condominium Act, were to be be made by March 11, 2013. You can e-mail your comments to the government.
Questions have arisen regarding entry to units for air conditioner inspection. Please note, you must provide the office with a duplicate key to your unit. The Super or other representatives of the condo may enter your unit to perform necessary duties. Please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions page.
Our weekly game moved to Thursday evenings, starting Jan. 31 at 7:00 p.m.
An engineer from KEA visited the units that reported problems with their windows. Work is scheduled for Jan. 30, 2013. The Air Leakage test will be performed that day on 5 windows selected at random. Repair work will be determined, based on the results of that test.
Some balcony doors, while in the secured position, have a large gap which you may not notice. In very cold weather the pipe located directly underneath the door could freeze. Please check to see if you feel a draft and make sure the operable or sliding side is shutting securely.
We are following up with the installation contractor on all problems residents have noted. We expect to meet with the installer in March to establish a timetable for further window repair and replacement as necessary. Please be sure you have reported any problems to the office.
If you’re having temporary problems paying condo fees or special assessments you might apply for a home equity loan. Most financial institutions would be willing to discuss the possibilities with you.
