Expert advice

Is it a good idea to clean out your savings to pay for major work? Ideally, you should have funds set aside to cover unplanned expenses or emergencies. Financing can be a great way to cover the cost of work in whole or in part. Speak to one of our advisors for advice tailored to your needs.

4 ways to finance repairs and renovations

Step 1

Saving together

How much do you pay into your reserve fund? Is it enough to cover any future work on the building?

Don't be caught off guard! Invest wisely and you'll have the funds you need to carry out any necessary work.

Step 2

Split your project up into phases

Can the work be divided into several phases?

If so, this is a great way to budget and pay for the work as you go without breaking the bank or borrowing money.

Step 3

Agree to a special assessment

If the condo fund comes up short, co-owners can agree to a special assessment to finance the work.

Each owner pays a portion of the amount based on the percent of the property they own. They can dip into their personal savings or opt for individual financing.

Even if everyone agrees on this solution, certain issues may arise. Some people may not have the funds readily available, which can make for a delicate situation and delay the start of work.

Borrow money as a condo association

You can also finance the work by applying for a business loan as a condo association. This option has three major advantages:

Cette solution présente trois avantages de taille :

  1. The condo association has the funds needed to cover the work.
  2. Any work can be completed in a single phase, so the co-owners can all enjoy the improvements to the building at the same time.
  3. This type of financing allows condo owners to pay for the work in instalments, which makes it more affordable.
