Repairs and maintenance of individual units are the responsibility of the owners and/or tenants as per their lease agreement. This includes garbage removal of over-sized items, appliances and construction waste. Please refer to the City of Edmonton’s reference guide to What Goes Where.
The condominium association maintains and repairs the common areas and exterior of the building.
Communicate Before You Renovate: Please Read the Maintenance, Repairs and Renovation Policy
Do you remember the ad campaign, Dial Before You Dig? Utility companies used it to warn property owners of the dangers of digging before knowing where gas and electrical lines were buried. Dialling might be an outmoded concept but the message is still valid. For condo owners, however, Communicate Before you Renovate, is perhaps a better slogan.
Communicate: with the property manager or the Board (Box 41)
What? Your plans: what work you are doing and approximately when. It is really important to know if your changes affect common property. Unauthorized changes, even needed repairs, to common property can become costly expenses for an owner. Common property includes the heating system, windows, parts of walls, sub-flooring, patios/balconies and more.
Why? To save yourself from unforeseen expenses and potential problems as well as avoiding conflict with your neighbours. The board and management do not want to interfere with your desire to improve your living space. We do, however, have valuable information that can save you needless expense.
Here is a list of current trades people used by the Chanticleer management. You are under NO obligation to use their services but they are familiar with the building, and they are are the contractors currently authorized to work on common property. Please remember: repairs and maintenance to common property can only be done with Board/Management authorization.
