The corporation is responsible for the maintenance and repair of all common property, including common property designated as exclusive use, such as balconies, parking stalls and parking garage storage units.
Common property includes:
- Everything beyond the drywall and below the flooring
- Windows and exterior doors
- The heating system
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 at your cost. Please refer to the City of Edmonton’s reference guide to What Goes Where.
Why Communicate BEFORE You Renovate?
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.
Even small repairs require consultation if they involve any aspect of the common property, for example shutting off the water to a whole unit affects other units.
Start with the Maintenance/Repairs Policies button, above and contact the property manager with further questions.
