Owners Request for Records


What records are unit owners entitled to inspect and how should boards and property management respond?

Section 55 of the Condominum Act provides some guidance as to what constitutes a "record" and what records owners do not have the right to examine. This section also provides that requests to examine the records shall be made in writing and that the examination shall be at a reasonable time for all purposes "reasonably related to the purposes of the Act." In addition, the person requesting copies of the records is required to pay a reasonable fee to compensate the Corporation for labour and copying charges.

What is unclear is what owners are required to state when they request a record. Are owners required to provide the reason that they are requesting the records so that the Corporation can confirm that request is for a purpose "reasonably related to the purposes of the Act?"
