RENOVATIONS, REPAIRS / UPGRADES
IMPORTANT: YOU ARE REQUIRED TO NOTIFY THE PROPERTY MANAGER if you are planning any renovations in your home. This is critical, as renos might have an effect on the common elements inside the walls or ceiling and must comply with the condominium by-laws which may require Board approval. Also, underground wires or gas lines should be considered with any changes. If trades people are doing upgrades in your townhouse, please inform the Property Manager of their presence and obtain pre-approval for renovations especially change of heating, air-conditioning, water heater, electrical and any structural changes. Each owner is responsible for acquiring all necessary building permits. Owners may be asked to assume financial liability for any damage to adjoining townhouses or common areas caused by the construction. All construction materials must be disposed off-site (not on condominium property) by the owner or their contractor.
TOWNHOUSE REPAIRS: Though in-townhouse problems are generally the responsibility of the homeowner, it is recommended that if you are unsure of how to proceed or who to contact for service you may contact the management office and you will be guided accordingly. If there are issues or repairs required contact the Property Manager who will assist you and either provide you the relevant phone numbers or make the calls for you. Service requests for common elements attached to or outside your unit such as doors/windows may be made online or by contacting the Property Manager.
