Amendment To Rules On Moving And Delivery
The following rule was approved by the Board of Directors of T.S.C.C. 1622 on May 25, 2010. In accordance with Section 29 (4) of the Condominium Act, it is intended to become effective thirty days after the date of its publication by this notice.
The effects of this policy are as follows:
- To exempt an owner from the elevator service charge when moving out when the suite is sold, and
- To clarify the rule with regard to damage deposits and elevator service charges for certain types of deliveries.
The Board of Directors of T.S.C.C. 1622 believes that it is not reasonable to expect all owners to bear the cost of additional wear and tear on the common elements and elevators, which results from frequent moves when a suite is leased. That it is reasonable to charge a service fee to cover the additional wear and tear and to compensate for the time spent to maintain the common elements and the elevator in a neat and tidy condition after moves.
Individuals reserving an elevator for a move (of for the delivery and removal of contractors’ materials) must leave a damage deposit of $300.00 payable to T.S.C.C. 1622. This deposit will be refunded after the move provided no damage has been caused to the elevator or the common elements. Repair of damage to the elevator or common elements resulting from the move in excess of $300.00 will be charged to the individual reserving the elevator or to the suite owner.
A non-refundable elevator service charge of $50.00 made payable to T.S.C.C. 1622 by a certified cheque or money order is also required for move in/out. This charge will not apply to one move-in and one move-out during each period of ownership of a suite by the same owner.
Non-resident owners who lease their suites may, if they wish, to allow one tenant to move-in or out without payment of the elevator service charge, but the charge will be levied for any move into or out of the same suite by subsequent tenants.
The damage deposit must be paid when an elevator is required by a contractor for delivery and removal of materials.
The elevators service charge must be paid when an elevator is required by a suite, but may be waived at the discretion of Management if the elevator will not be reserved for longer than thirty minutes. The damage deposit is not required for deliveries, although an owner would be responsible for the cost of repairing any damage caused during delivery.
Any move or delivery that requires a service elevator should be reserved with the Management Office. The elevator can only be reserved for times between 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. from Monday to Saturday excluding public holidays. The use of elevator for moving or for deliveries outside these hours is not permitted and therefore moves may not be later than 7:00 p.m.
Only the service elevator can be reserved. Therefore, residents should reserve as far in advance as possible to avoid inconvenience if the service elevator is already reserved by another resident.
