condominium: Condo Rules are Not Unreasonable. - 08/31/10 09:54 AM
During a conversation with my condo's building manager, she stated that a few residents have told her they don't like all the notices that are put up reminding people about the by-laws. The most recent notices are: pick up after your dog, don't let dogs pee in the parking garage, and steps to follow to keep the building secure. I responded that if people were following the by-laws, rules and regulations to begin with, there would be no need for the reminders. Now, in general, most by-laws, rules and regulations in a condominium corporation are no different than any other rule (10 comments)
condominium: Security Matters - 08/25/10 05:51 PM
I live in a high-rise condominium apartment building. We have a security entrance and this entrance is set up in such a way that residents have fobs to get in and visitors are to call whoever they are visiting on the intercom so they can be buzzed in. Contractors and such are to call the building manager or her assistant. Today, I had a bit of an altercation with a contractor who wanted me to let him in. As I was closing the door behind me, he grabbed it. I didn't know him; I hadn't seen him before, so I told (10 comments)
condominium: Joker is a Dog - He Now Lives in a Condo - 02/15/10 04:50 PM
Most condos in Ontario allow dogs now and Joker really appreciates that. He is a fairly large dog (95 pounds), but has adjusted well to apartment living. He is very quiet...partially because he gets four walks a day on the surrounding wooded trails. Joker is also very patient. Joker lives in an apartment condo with an elevator. He has learned to be patient, because his pet has taught him to be. When he and his pet wait for the elevator they are back against the wall. He sits and waits until an elevator door opens. Before he and his pet moves they look to see who might be in the elevator. When he gets the "okay" he enters. If (8 comments)
condominium: Ever Notice in a Condominium.... - 01/08/10 10:51 AM
Just recently I moved into a Condominium. The people here are fantastic. For the most part they are helpful and friendly and it's almost like living in a small community inside the city. But the biggest thing I've noticed that most of the people here seem to be fit. Could it be because an exercise room and a Sauna are part of the common areas? Yeah, that could be why. Could it be because people in condominiums live less of a stressful life than those who have to maintain a detached house (no snow-shovelling; garbage is taken of, etc.)? Yeah, that (8 comments)
