Condos, Covid, and Compliance

Article Summary: 

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted how condominium corporations communicate and handle repairs within their communities. Toronto Standard Condominium Corporation No. 1704 enforced a policy to restrict repairs during the pandemic, leading to the refusal of Ms. Fraser's request to repair her flooded unit. The court found the policy valid and enforceable, emphasizing the need for reasonable policies during the continuing prevalence of the pandemic. Condominium corporations have a positive duty to ensure a safe environment and may adopt stricter restrictions than government bodies as long as they are reasonable. Temperature checks, questionnaires, risk assessments, and prioritizing essential projects help manage the risk of virus transmission. Condominium corporations need to have clear, well-thought-out Covid-19 policies enforced consistently to protect their communities.
