Rules and Regulations

As per Section 58(1) of the Condominium Act, 1998 (the “Act”), the Board of Directors of a condominium corporation has the authority to make rules governing the use of the common elements and the unit with respect to safety, security or welfare of the owners and of the property and assets of the corporation. Rules can also be made to prevent unreasonable interference with the use and enjoyment of the common elements, the units, and the assets of the corporation. Furthermore, as per section 58(2 of the Act, the rules must be reasonable and consistent with the Act, the Declaration and By-laws. With these general considerations in mind, our lawyers, Deacon, Spears, Fedson & Montizambert commented on the Rules and a full revision was done in 2009.

In the event of subsequent changes, rules come into effective 30 days after having been given notice of the Rules to the Owners, provided that the Board does not receive a requisition from 15% of the units who are listed in the record maintained by the corporation under subsection 47(2) and are entitled to vote.

46(2) Form of requisition – The requisition shall, (a) be in writing and be signed by the requisitionists; (b) state the nature of the business to be presented at the meeting; and (c) be delivered personally or by registered mail to the president or secretary of the board or deposited at the address for service of the corporation.

We trust that the owners will find the Rules & Regulations reasonable and in the best interests of the majority of the owners.
