APPROVAL BY YOUR CONDOMINIUM BOARD / STRATA COUNCIL

Every condominium community has rules about what you can and cannot do on the balcony or terrace of your suite. That's because these outdoor spaces actually belong to the building and are managed by your Condominium Board or Strata Council. They're referred to, in real-estate terms, as "exclusive-use common areas or elements" because only you can use them.

The Declarant Documents you received on purchasing your condo should outline any restrictions related to how the balcony or terrace was built.

Your Condominium Board or Strata Council will require owners who wish to upgrade their balconies or terraces to obtain approval prior to installing any addition, alteration or improvement.
