House rules, condo regulations

In addition to the lease, it is possible to write a Building Regulations, concerning, in particular, the enjoyment, use and maintenance of the housing in general. When, in addition, the rented accommodation is considered to be a condo, you should be aware that there are already, for the co-owners, regulations of the co-ownership. The tenant of a condo may therefore be required to comply with two regulations: the co-owner’s who rents to the tenant for the use that must be made of his condo, and secondly, the regulation established in the deed of co-ownership and which binds all co-owners of the building.

Tout comme certaines clauses dans le bail, la clause de stationnement gagnerait souvent à être plus détaillée qu'un simple ''x'' dans une case à cocher.

Selon la décision, le locataire a un espace de stationnement dans le garage double, en plus d'un espace de stationnement extérieur qui fait partie de son bail.

Water flowing from upper balconies: neither the co-owner nor the syndicate are at fault

In a recent judgement of the Court of Québec, Small Claims division 1, the Court held that a co-owner of a building had not proved that the plant-sprinkling water from his neighbour, three floors up, was responsible for the deterioration of the painted surfaces of his balcony. The syndicate of co-ownership, called in as warranty by the prosecuted co-owner is not responsible either, according to the Court.

The claims of the parties in the Court
The plaintiff and the defendant own condominiums located respectively on the 24th and 27th floors of the building. The plaintiff accuses the defendant of having badly maintained the balcony of his condominium, thereby causing the flow of wastewater. The applicant therefore claims from him $4,300 in compensation for water damage to his balcony.
