Patio Door Replacement - Letter To The Editor

Toronto Condo News
Publication date:
September 23, 2022
Article Summary: 

In this letter to the editor, J.D. asks who is responsible for replacing the patio door to their balcony. Toronto Condo News responds by explaining that the responsibility for repairing or replacing a patio door depends on the condo's declaration and by-laws, but since it is a private space accessible only to the owner, it is likely their responsibility. The condo corporation may provide assistance or arrange for the work to be done at the owner's cost. Front door replacements are typically the obligation of the corporation, unless caused by the owner. Door hardware may be the owner's responsibility if stated in the declaration or by-laws. Inaccessible windows are the corporation's responsibility, while accessible windows and inside caulking are the owner's responsibility. Obligations for maintaining doors and windows can be found in the Condo Archives under Condo Building Management and Safety and Security.
