Condominium Owners Have Their Say
Condo Survey To Conclude October 31, 2010
Ontario is encouraging condominium owners to provide any comments or concerns they have about condo living before the online condominium survey wraps up on October 31, 2010.
The survey, posted at www.ontario.ca/condos, asks condo owners about their experiences with buying and living in condos, as well as with condo corporations, boards of directors, repairs and maintenance, reserve funds and dispute resolution. Information provided with the survey also helps condo owners learn more about their rights and responsibilities under the Condominium Act.
The survey provides government with a broad snapshot of Ontarians' experiences with condos and since its launch on July 26, 2010, more than 3,100 Ontarians have completed the survey.
Prior to October 31, 2010, condo owners can also request more information about the survey through their local Members of Provincial Parliament (MPP) office or by calling the Ministry of Consumer Services toll-free at 1-800-889-9768.
- The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation estimates there are approximately 525,000 condominium units in Ontario.
- Sales of condominiums in the Greater Toronto Area hit a record in the first quarter of 2010 according to independent research. Developers sold 5,415 new condos in the first three months of this year, up 491 per cent (nearly six times more) from the same time in 2009.
“We would like to thank all Ontarians who took the time to complete our condo survey and share their experiences as condo owners. The valuable information that you shared helps us to better understand the marketplace so that we can give consumers tools to get the facts they need to make informed condo-buying choices.”
