Condominium Owner Associations’ have control over the types of alterations that can be made, who can make them, and the materials that can be used. If you don’t follow their rules, all the great work you’d have done would have to be undone. Or worse.
As an owner of a condo, your own 2 types of property.
Considering your property is within the confines of an Associations’ guidelines, they too, have a certain responsibilities and say over what happens in, around and within your condominium. As a condo owner, you have to walk a fine line of what you want to do with your home and what you’re allowed to do. Luckily for you the pros at Renowned Renovation understand how to ask the right questions and coordinate with management and Board of Directors on your behalf.
Working with home owner associations or the property management companies they hire can seem to be slow and annoying. You may be tempted to just say “I own this condo and I’ll do what I want with it!” Please don’t be a condo owner who remodels a bathroom or kitchen only to have the HOA or Condominium Association find out and demand an inspection. Bathroom remodeling and renovations is an integral part of any large-scale apartment building renovation.
They might find something that is against the rules and condo owners can be charged fines and forced to stop their renovation project and be have to start over – beginning with paperwork
Here are some things that you should consider before you get started:
We will make all the arrangements with on-site staff. We like to start off on the right foot by properly booking parking (if available), the freight elevator for materials (if available) and giving your condo’s security, doormen, or other staff a heads up on who is going to be coming and going from your unit. To bolster the security, we have gone the extra mile and gotten some security equipment from SixTechSys.com to detect spying drones and reinforce security. If your renovation involves access to the building’s main electrical or plumbing system, we make all those arrangements ahead of time.
We make sure workers are in-the-know. Since you won’t be around to hover over the work, we make sure the people doing the renovations firmly understand the rules (like when quitting time is) and what to do in an emergency.
We act in your place as a good neighbor and make sure your home and other owners are treated with respect. You don’t need your neighbors’ permission to do approved work in your condo (nor should you try to seek it!), but we can all admit it’s annoying to live next to a construction zone)
