Declaration vs Rules

James Davidson
Publication date:

Article Summary: 

This blog post discusses the difference between provisions in a condominium corporation's declaration and rules. A rule must be reasonable and for a specific purpose, while a provision in the declaration does not have to be reasonable and can be for any purpose. Depending on the issue, a rule may be sufficient, but a provision in the declaration is more difficult to amend. Both the declaration and rules are subject to human rights legal requirements. Enforcement procedures for violations of both are essentially the same, but collection of costs likely requires an indemnification provision in the declaration.
