I am sorry but I cannot speak to you on the telephone. I know the site offers this service but the site is based in the US. As I am a lawyer in Canada the rules of my law society prohibit me from speaking to you on the telephone as you are not my client.

I can only speak to you by posting up and back over this site.

That is unusual but if that is the case then the individual owners must pay for the renovations or repairs just as they would have to do for something they were renovating or repairing inside their own unit.

Does that answer your question?
