This article provides six surprising facts about maintenance fees for condo owners.

Thirdly, maintenance fees typically pay for on-site staff, property management contracts, amenities, exterior repairs, property taxes, insurance, and a reserve fund. Fourthly, fees for condos in Toronto average $0.69 per square foot. Fifthly, low fees could indicate future problems or unexpected expenses, and parking spots and lockers also come with maintenance fees.
