Whether you operate a small self managed condo, or a large development with a wide range of needs, we offer service levels to support your interests and carry your operations forward.
There are times when a corporation may be experiencing all the symptoms and problems of a condo that needs help, but the owners and directors just don’t know where to start. The issues are clear; tension between owners and the board, mounting expenses, financial anxiety, feeling unprepared for large scale projects, repeat insurance claims and rising premiums, and uncertainty about the bylaws or policies, to name a few. For a corporation experiencing any of these issues, just having a productive meeting can be a challenge. Condo Triage is a short term consultation program designed to assess the issues your condo is experiencing and diffuse conflicts that are impeding your progress. From 2 – 6 meetings, the length of a triage consultation is customized for your specific needs. This could be something as focused as the mediation of meetings and owner issues. It can also be a much broader analysis of your property and systems, giving specific advice on how to improve your operations. Condo Triage is designed to give you the clarity needed for your Board to make informed decisions.
Intensive Condo Care
For condominiums with a variety of budgeting, planning, maintenance and personnel challenges, Intensive Care is a program tailored to develop a management plan and put this into action. During a 6 – 18 month Intensive Care period, your corporation receives a complete evaluation of its financial planning, maintenance programs, and service partner relationships. When working together, these systems provide the solid foundation needed to support the best interests of your condominium and all owners. The goal of Intensive Care management is for your condo to have the systems and informed confidence necessary to keep moving forward on a stable path. As well as the regular ongoing management of your property and corporate affairs, your management professional undertakes:
- Review of your financials and implementation of an audit if not previously done
- Implementation of cost savings measures and restructuring of the financial plan
- Development of operating budget projections to support the long term goals of the corporation
- Reserve Fund Study review and construction of 5 and 10 year reserve plans
- Managing tenders for service contractors or large maintenance projects
- Seeking service proposals from other professionals for engineering, construction, remediation,investment planning, legal advice etc. in accordance with your corporation’s needs
- Review and overhaul of insurance coverage and current incidents if applicable
- Review of bylaws and policies with consultation on the provisions of The Condominium Property Act
- Structuring of Condominium Plan amendments and parking plans as required
- Other corporation specific consultation as needed
