Your condominium must have a condominium manager. The condominium manager assists in the operation of the corporation with the board. Some condominiums choose to hire a licensed condominium management company rather than just a manager. Regardless of your condominium choice between hiring a manager or a licensed condominium management company, the condominium council remains responsible for making final decisions. Hiring a manager or a condominium management company acts in the day-to-day tasks of the condominium corporation.
Some common problems with condo management can be considered:
- Do not act in daily activities, as foreseen for your performance.
- Non-conformities following the statutes and rules of the condominium
Some condominiums have, in addition to the manager, a superintendent. You must know that they play different roles. A superintendent has tasks related to the maintenance of the condominium facilities (both internal and external installations) and may also include supervision and general maintenance areas of the building and the organization of general building repairs.
If your condominium has a condominium manager, make sure he is a licensed professional from the Ontario Condominium Management Authority (CMRAO). The condominium manager usually performs some activities such as:
- Make payments on behalf of the company.
- Negotiates or concludes contracts on behalf of the company
- Charge fees and expenses
- Other services, following the Condominium Management Services Law 2015.
