Per-Use Condo Fees

Toronto Condo Use
Publication date:

Article Summary: 

In condo living, sharing costs for maintaining common areas is a given. However, an excessive emphasis on cost-sharing can lead to abuse by some condo owners. To avoid this, some condo corporations incorporate a limited number of per-use fees. Examples of per-use fees include electricity submetering, move-in and move-out fees, and pet fees. However, too many per-use fees may upset some owners, and there is also the issue of fairness, particularly for rented suites and pets. The role of the board is to determine what is best for the condo corporation, and when considering per-use fees, it is important to communicate with residents and owners to gain support. The ultimate goal of implementing per-use fees is to avoid subsidizing a minority for their behavioral choices and result in lower monthly condo fees for everyone.
