We provide direct support to your board members and site staff. We’ll be in attendance at regularly scheduled annual meetings for your condominium corporation and help in creating and managing an annual management calendar for each property.
Why Is an Annual Management Calendar Important?
The Condo Corporation is responsible for keeping track of critical matters that need to be addressed within the building. An annual management calendar can help ensure that critical issues such as updates, repairs, or inspections required by the Condominium Management Regulatory Authority of Ontario are completed on time and on budget.
A well-maintained condo management calendar can also help improve the living experience for all condo residents. A management calendar helps to keep your property a desirable place to live.
Contracts & Disputes
From condo residents to third-party contractors, and representatives of the condo corporation such as building management and the board of directors, a residential condo building can have hundreds of parties involved. Contracts must be negotiated and signed by each of these parties, but this doesn’t ensure cooperation from everyone. A condo management company can help with issues such as contract negotiation and dispute resolution with homeowners.
Why Does It Help to Have a Management Team?
Wilson Blanchard can help resolve condominium disputes and ensure the process is carried out within governing document guidelines. We’ll ensure proper adherence to relevant guidelines like the Condominium Management Services Act. Each contract or dispute situation will be dealt with as required by the Condominium Management Regulatory Authority of Ontario. We’ll keep detailed records of various interactions and events, including financial reports, to help avoid and resolve potential disputes.
What Is an Example of a Condo Dispute?
Various disputes arise from time to time in any condo building. Common issues include disputes between residents due to property damage, noise complaints, and reckless behaviour. Issues can also arise between owners or residents and the condo corporation. In this case, it helps to have a trusted third party to help mediate and arbitrate the discussions, raise the issue to the Condominium Authority Tribunal (CAT), and keep detailed records of the complaints.
Having a Registered Condominium Manager (RCM) helps take the pressure off of you and your condo board.
When working with third-party contractors, it’s extremely important to ensure a proper process is adhered to. Negotiating a reasonable contract is the first step to a healthy relationship with contractors, but additional supervision helps to ensure the property is kept safe and well-maintained for your residents.
Why Is Supervision Needed?
Setting Expectations For Contractors
Supervision is key when working with third-party contractors for several reasons. In the early stages of your relationship with a new contractor, it’s crucial to supervise any work being completed in order to ensure it fits the requested and agreed-upon project scope. Dealing with any potential quality issues from the outset can help set expectations and avoid long-term issues.
Resident Safety And Liability
Supervision is also an important part of ensuring resident safety. Ensuring the property is well-maintained in the winter months can drastically reduce the risk of slip-and-fall hazards during the harsh winter months and prevent potential litigation from such events. Supervision is also key when bringing in outside contractors to work in public areas of the building or directly in resident units.
