Are you thinking of renting out your condominium? Replacing your carpet with hardwood? Moving into or out of the building? Bringing home a lovable pet?
These are a few of the events that require condominium owners and residents to inform the board of directors. In most cases, the board just needs to be aware of the situation and provide guidance.
For instance, many owners have installed alternate flooring in their units, but only engineered hardwood or laminate can be used above the ground floor since floors above the ground floor are made of Gypcrete (there are no cross members to nail into). The board recommends engineered hardwood or laminate greater than 12mm thick with underlay.
People moving into or out of the building are not permitted to use the main doors due to past damage. Any doors propped open must be supervised at all times. Without the elevator key, the elevator may lock if the door is kept open too long.
Condominium rentals are permitted, but the board needs full contact information on renters and a damage deposit.
Without this information, the board cannot run the building efficiently and might not be able to contact residents in an emergency. Many of these notifications are required as per the condo by-laws, while others ensure the safety and comfort of all residents.
Review the River Grande by-laws and notify the board as necessary.
