There are many ways you can enjoy settling into a new condominium. However, dealing with a noise complaint probably isn't one of them.More residents may be using outdoor terraces, BBQ areas, sporting grounds, or generally having more people over to visit as the weather gets warmer. It's important to know what to do if neighbours are making excessive noise, and interrupting the enjoyment of your new home.
You already own your house, but you have a need to move. Perhaps your family is growing and you need more space. Perhaps you have retired, and you need less space. Perhaps you were relocated for work. Now what do you do? Most people will hire a real estate agent to find another house. There are many people who believe, as do many agents who confirm to them, that buying and selling houses on the same day is an efficient way to complete a transaction. The lawyers at Merovitz Potechin LLP, disagree.The idea is fraught with danger. Here are 3 reasons why:
Composting is an environmentally friendly way to dispose of organic waste. While encouraged throughout Ontario, only a quarter of homeowners living in high-rise units compost their organic waste.Ontario has proposed changes to increase composting throughout the province. An initiative was proposed to change building code requirements of high-rises to include spaces for green bin disposal mechanisms in addition to garbage and recycling.
Baby boomers (generally those born between the late 1940s to 1960s) are beginning to show signs of downsizing. According to an article in the National Post, their millennial children (generally those born during the 1980s and 1990s) are finally beginning to move out on their own. This means that their parents can finally explore their real estate options now that they have an empty nest.
Most condo corporations have a set of rules and regulations for living in their properties. These rules should be provided to new owners before they take ownership of a unit. They are in place to ensure the continued enjoyment and safety of the property for all condo owners.
