Financial services for condo syndicates and associations
Count on us to help you manage your condo efficiently and effectively.
We'll make your day-to-day condominium management easier
We're here to help you look after your condo's assets and adapt to new laws. Our savings and insurance products are designed to meet the specific needs of a condo syndicate (sometimes known as a condo association or corporation). Furthermore, you’ll benefit from the expertise of our partners as well as their innovative and affordable management tools.
What the new laws mean for your condominium
The revised condo laws aim at better protecting condo owners (Bill 141) and reinforcing building maintenance (Bill 16). These laws specify 4 main obligations for condo syndicates:
This fund must cover maintenance, repair and renovation costs of the property's common areas.
The amount must be calculated by a contingency fund study conducted every 5 years by a certified professional.
The maintenance log details the building's characteristics and helps assess the contingency fund. The syndicate must use it to document the building's history, including any completed and upcoming work.
Sufficient insurance coverage
The condo syndicate's insurance policy must cover:
- The building's reconstruction value reassessed every 5 years by a member of the Ordre des évaluateurs agréés du Québec
- The building's common areas (ex. lobby, elevator, terrace)
- The original condition of each unit
- The syndicate's and managing staff's civil liability
This fund must cover the highest deductible of the syndicate's insurance policy in the event of a claim.
