Article Summary: 

Condo elevators require regular maintenance to prevent breakdowns and ensure resident safety. Experts recommend maintenance at least four times per year, with monthly visits being ideal. Maintenance contracts should outline specific tasks and standards, including provisions for compensation when visits are missed. Laws in Ontario aim to address repair delays and enhance elevator safety. Eventually, elevators will need replacement, which can be costly and disruptive. Proactive planning and communication are essential to minimize disruption during repairs or replacements.
