Some of the questions that we have received by emails in the past few months were about condo docs.  Most condo association are managed by  a professional management company who will provide the condo docs to the seller upon request.  In majority of cases, the seller has to pay for the docs and it may take up to 10 business days to receive the complete package.  Some condo boards offer the docs for free on line on their website or via internet portal like GeniePad, but you have to be an owner in order to gain access to them.  As you will see below is the list of condo documents as per Alberta Real Estate Association that majority of the companies will provide:

(1) a statement setting out the amount of any contributions due and payable in respect of the unit

(2) the particulars of: i. any action commenced against the corporation and served on the corporation ii. any unsatisfied judgment or order for which the corporation is liable iii. any written demand made on the corporation for an amount in excess of $5,000 that, if not met, may result in an action being brought against the corporation

(3) the particulars of, or a copy of, any subsisting management agreement

(4) the particulars of, or a copy of, any subsisting recreational agreement

(5) the particulars of any post tension cables located anywhere on or within the property that is included in the condominium plan

(6) a copy of the budget of the corporation

(8) a copy of the bylaws of the corporation

(10) a copy of the minutes and draft minutes of meetings of the board of directors of the corporation for not less than the past 12 months

(11) a statement setting out the amount of the capital replacement reserve fund

(14) a statement setting out the amount of the monthly contribution (commonly referred to as condominium fee) and the basis on which that amount was determined

(15) a statement setting out any structural deficiencies that the corporation has knowledge of, at the time of the request, in any of the buildings that are included in the condominium plan

(16) a copy of any lease agreement or exclusive use agreement with respect to the possession of a portion of the common property, including a parking stall or storage space
