The Importance of a Standard Unit Description

James Davidson
Publication date:

Article Summary: 

The blog explains the importance of a standard unit description for Ontario condominiums. The standard units in a condominium are either described in a by-law or are supposed to be provided by the Declarant. The standard unit description provides the details of the standard features of the unit. If a condominium does not have a standard unit description, it may lead to confusion regarding what constitutes an improvement to a unit and the unit improvement insurance held by most owners could be wasted. An amendment to the Condominium Act is expected to introduce a "statutory" standard unit description for condominiums that do not have their own. The blog recommends passing a standard unit by-law to create or change the standard unit description.
