Overview

Every condominium corporation has bylaws and rules. The bylaws are a component of the Declaration given to owners upon purchase of their unit. If you do not have a copy of the corporation’s bylaws, you can obtain a copy from the Property Manager, a copy of the bylaws and rules can also be found at corelofts.ca/bylaws. The rules and bylaws are designed to create a safe and pleasant environment, allowing residents to enjoy their homes without infringing upon the rights of other residents.  

Below are some of the more common bylaws and rules. Please refer to your Rules and Regulations for a complete listing. 

Non-Smoking/Vaping Building

Smoking and vaping are not permitted in the common areas or residential units of the building unless grandfathered.

Cannibis Prohibition

The smoking/vaping or growing of cannabis is not allowed in any suite or common element.

Pets

Pet owners must ensure that their pet is not a nuisance (e.g., barking) and does not defecate upon the common elements.  If an accident does occur, such defecation should be cleaned up immediately by the pet owner. 

Failure to do so may result in charges levied against the owner for cleaning costs and arrangements.

No pets shall be allowed under any circumstances in the public or common areas of the building except to enter or exit the building. When transporting the pet from the condominium suite and throughout the interior common elements, the owner shall either carry the pet or hold it on a short leash.  

Only one dog is allowed per suite. Maximum 30 pounds. 

Noise

All residents and their guests are requested to have consideration for their neighbours on all sides.  Loud music, boisterous parties, obnoxious conduct or an unwillingness to restrict such behaviour will result in action being taken by the Board of Directors.  Bumping or banging on walls or floors, drilling etc. will inconvenience your neighbours.  Should someone show complete lack of consideration of your right to peace and quiet, please put your complaint in writing to the Property Manager. In emergency situations, call the police directly then advise the Property Manager thereafter.
