    The Treasurer of our condo Board circulated this statement in writing to all Owners. Is this an accurate claim? “CONDO LAW states RFund contributions should be at $2000/unit per year & double that to $4000/unit for an older build .”

    Thank you

    No, there is no provision under the Condominium Property Act for that.

    The Act requires that a Reserve fund study be undertaken every five years and that a reserve plan be tabled by the Board every year, but no specific amounts are prescribed.

    I agree with Brian.

    When someone says that “condo law states…” ask them for the section of the Condominium Property Act (CPA) that they believe applies. Here is the link to the Queen’s Printer.

    Other legislation that may be of assistance in your condo in other areas, are the bylaws and the Condominium Property Act Regulation, also available from the QP.

    Reserve funds are very important in the long-term. Plans should be updated each year. We understand that a large percentage of condos have underfunded reserves.
