Why as the window boarded up?
Why was it not replaced?
Is this a common area?
How much will it cost to replace the window?
What is their reasoning?
Why as the window boarded up?The previous owner boarded it up to facilitate venting the dryer through that opening.
Why was it not replaced? When I purchased the home it as not a big deal so I didn't pursue getting it replaced but now it appears that I am supposed to incur the cost of replacing the window and I am trying to find out why?
Is this a common area? It is in my basement but an external window. I think that would be considered common area.
How much will it cost to replace the window? So far my research shows that the window will probably cost $120 I haven't had a quote on installing the window. (To be honest I was figuring I would replace it myself)
What is their reasoning? I have written the property manager this morning with that very question. I will let you know when i know. So far I have simply been told, No.
I guess the question I have then is when they went around and replaced all the windows did you tell them not to replace this one?
And if so are the saying the don't want to pay someone to come back for one window?
I guess. Unfortunately I wasn't the person that declined the replacement. The previous owner must have declined.
I think you can compel them to do the work if you had to as it's their property and not yours.
But for $120 it's not likely worth it.
Thanks. I will will take your advice. I really appreciate you being on line to help out. This is a fantastic and quick resource.
It was just frustrating that they can arbitrarily decide not to replace it. But as you stated it's not worth the fight and my house closes June 12th. Probably not the time either. Thanks again.
You are very welcome and good luck with the move!
For your records, I just heard back. Incase this ever comes up again thought you would like to see his response.

America and I will tell you now- this window was removed by you or a previous owner and obviously has been lost or damaged which is the reason the plywood is up. There is no liability on the condo corporation under the Act, 1998 to replace it. Have a great weekend. Barry Montgomery Property manager Barry L. Montgomery
