Changes and Alterations
No owner can make any structural change in or to his unit or make any change to an installation on the common elements or paint, stain, decorate or alter or repair any part of the common elements (outside) without the prior written consent of the Board. The value of each condominium unit is based not only on the condition of that particular unit but also on the condition of the condominium as a whole. All owners and residents of Salter Square share the responsibility of maximizing our investment by ensuring that changes to the units or common elements are made safely and that the appearance of our property reflects care, attention and visual harmony.
Requests for Board approval must be submitted in writing to the Property Manager by mail or fax or may be dropped off at the pool house mailbox. Proposals must supply sufficient information for the Board to assess whether the changes meet all of the applicable codes and regulations.
The Standard Unit Bylaw outlines the standard construction for your unit. The unit owner (past, present and future) is fully responsible for any damages that result from any modifications or additions made to the common elements or units by an owner or occupant. In other words, if changes to the standard unit were made prior to your purchase of the unit, you are responsible for upkeep and/or repairs.
All future maintenance, general repair and replacement of any modifications or additions made to the common elements or units (with or without prior Board approval) by an owner or occupant are the sole responsibility of the unit owner or occupant, present and future. For example, in the event of a fire, the Corporation is responsible for restoring the unit to the conditions in the Standard Unit Bylaw only.
In order to permit the Corporation to complete repairs to the common elements, the unit owner must remove any addition hindering the work and the owner will be responsible for restoring the area. Otherwise, the Corporation will bill the owner directly for costs incurred by the Corporation to correct these situations.
