Things to consider if renovating a condo or coop

On Behalf of | May 21, 2024 | Condo, Townhome & HOA Disputes |

If you need to renovate a unit in a condo, then it is essential to stay aware of how this might lead to legal problems. It would only take one of those to bring everything to a halt and cause you considerable extra cost.

Here are some examples of what could lead to issues:

The timing of the work

You may be in a rush to get the work done as quickly as possible, but other residents have the right to live in a reasonable amount of peace and quiet. You cannot, for instance, have your builders working through the night, because it would cause others to complain about the noise and vibrations.

Considerate scheduling may also include thinking about dates as well as times of day. For instance, scheduling noisy work the week before kids who reside in the condo have exams won’t go down well as it will disrupt their revision.


Most local authorities like to control the building work that goes on in their area. Check if you need permits or permissions and ensure you get them before starting. You may also need permission within the condo itself, from the board or owners.

Changes in housing laws

Housing requirements change over time. That could mean some features you want to install are no longer an option because the law requires something more energy-efficient, or safer. Learning more about the latest requirements saves wasted money or penalties for breaking the law.

To give yourself the best chance of a problem-free renovation, consider legal guidance to help you through the process.
