Condo Disputes – FAQs

The condominium statutes and rules exist to be complied with and maintain the good living of the residents. If you encounter any situation of non-compliance with the statute and the regulations of your condominium, you must first notify management. It is condo management’s role to resolve the matter and other condo disputes with the other residents.

If your condominium has made any changes to the condominium’s statute rules or information, management is obliged to inform all owners and occupants. Also, they need to make it clear from which date this information change starts to be valid.

Depending on the problem, you should talk to your neighbor first. For it may be that he has not realized that he is causing an issue for you. However, if the problem persists even after you notify it, contact your condominium management.

If you and other residents are dissatisfied with the condominium management’s work, know that you don’t have to wait until the next term to replace them. The Law states that at least 15% of condominium owners can file a petition requesting one of the corporation’s management members’ replacement.

The minimum winter temperature allowed in condominium corridors may vary depending on where you live. For example, according to Toronto property regulations, it does not include a temperature limit for corridors. The standard only says that runners need the ventilation system to be active.
