When Is It Time to Update Rules?

Trish Kaplan
Publication date:

Article Summary: 

Condominium boards are responsible for making, amending, or repealing rules that promote safety, security, welfare, and prevent unreasonable interference in condominium living. Boards are encouraged to periodically review and amend rules to address changing circumstances, demographics, and non-compliance issues. Rules should be clear and unambiguous to avoid conflicts, and owners can present their concerns for consideration. The Condominium Authority of Ontario (CAO) provides assistance and templates for addressing common issues in condominium living. Non-compliance should be reported and documented, and rules that are not enforced for an extended period may become unenforceable. Landlords are responsible for their tenants' compliance, and residents are responsible for their visitors' compliance. Corporations should consider implementing harassment, violence, and discrimination rules to address offensive behavior and seek legal advice when necessary.
