Below is an outline of the types of maintenance and renovations which do and do not require approval by the management company and Board. If you have questions which are not answered here please contact the management company.

Routine maintenance and decorative work

Routine repairs, maintenance or minor improvements—painting, wallpapering, carpeting, decorative carpentry or window treatments—do not require the prior consent of the management company or the Board.

If the work involves excessive noise (i.e., floor sanding) or strong odors, you must notify the management company in advance so that neighbors can be told what to expect and when to expect it. Such work may only be performed Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., except on holidays.

Major renovations and non-routine work

Major renovations and non-routine work require the prior written approval of the management company, acting on behalf of the Board. Examples of such work include the alteration of plumbing, gas, electrical, heating or ventilation systems, the demolition or construction of any walls and the installation or removal of any items such as plumbing fixtures or heating/air conditioning units.

It is essential for the security and order of the building that any Unit Owners having such work done hire licensed and insured contractors. Proof of licensure and insurance, and a completed Alteration Agreement must be submitted to the management company before work begins.

There are fees associated with the Alteration Agreement which must be submitted along with the agreement. See the Alteration Fees section at the bottom of Fees.
