Question: Can approval be granted for lot owner renovation – with a condition that works are NOT to commence before a certain date?
A lot owner has made a application for a bathroom renovation with By-law included etc.
At the upcoming AGM, can approval for the renovation be granted with a condition that works are NOT to commence before a certain date? Reasons will be given in detail for this request. The committee that, as more residents are working from home and staying at home more due to the current situation with COVID-19, his renovations and the noise associated will be seriously disruptive for weeks.
Is this a reasonable thing to ask?
Answer: It is not really fair to the owner wishing to carry out renovations not to be able to carry out the renovations at his preferred time.
While it does not sound unreasonable for those who will be at home due to the noise and disruption, it is not really fair to the owner wishing to carry out renovations not to be able to carry out the renovations at his preferred time.
Also, local council and legislation govern permissible times for noisy works to protect all residents from inconsiderate neighbours carrying out renovations.
