Article Summary: 

The article discusses the process of condominium warranty coverage and the importance of performance audits to identify deficiencies in common elements. The first-year warranty covers defects in materials and workmanship, the second-year warranty covers water penetration and defects in systems, and the seven-year warranty covers major structural defects. A performance audit is a post-construction assessment conducted by a professional engineer or architect to ensure compliance with construction standards. The deficiency list from the audit must be managed through the Performance Audit Tracking Summary (PATS), and timely updates and resolutions are essential for warranty claims. If disputes arise, conciliation with TARION may be necessary to resolve outstanding deficiencies.
