    The building is okay. The blinds issue is gone. The area is less sketchy than in the past. The cleaning staff do a great job. The concierge seem to be okay. The management staff leaves something to be desired and can be difficult to deal with. Make sure you book and then confirm the...

    And then use a different company! Unless you think they did a good job with your windows, in which case it makes sense to use them. The person who installed my windows did a crappy job - they are drafty, incompletely sealed, and they frames were dented. I would never give them my business.

    How was the meeting? I haven't had that smell. It definitely isn't normal. I hope it was temporary, perhaps due to maintenance, and has gone away. If it hasn't, tell the office they need to look into it. Maintenance fees I just found out today that they will be going up December 1, 2011...

    I haven't noticed, but I am glad you said something to them when you noticed.

    I recall you detailing this story on the board when it happened. I don't think I realized then that you were home at the time, I thought you had come home to find a big mess. I would have totally flipped too if I was home alone and someone just unlocked my door and walked in!!!!!!!! What a...

    I think Tarion should still replace them at this point in time if it is needed. Your feedback from the A/C experts makes me wonder what the builder actually got right when they were building it!?! So many issues. Email Beth and ask her to tell you what the policy is regarding entry of our...

    I hear people above, below and beside me. And in the hallway. It is really really annoying!! I hear people going to the bathroom, running water, coughing, talking, dropping things on the floor, vaccuuming, playing music, etc etc. I can only assume this goes both ways and they can hear me...

    Maintenance Fees increase? I heard a rumour that our maintenance fees will be going up in December. Does anybody have any more information? I am curious how the Times Group management will attempt to justify the increase.

    I have found the quality of the flooring that Times Group used for my floor is extremely poor. I suspect your floors pop for this reason. I am also unhappy with my closet doors due to their poor quality. I am planning to replace them with good quality doors.

    Regarding Tarion: the letter accompanying the survey said that the end client was Tarion. Perhaps it is clear to you that Tarion would not receive our surveys directly, but it certainly was not clear to all of us. I do note your statement "report will be reviewed by the board, and submitted to...

    Roy, I agree that it is "important stuff." However, the reality is that we have a unprofessional and incompetent Property Manager. I think it's important to note that the forms must be submitted to THEM, and not an independent group. THEY can then go through the forms, vet them...

    Property tax - waiting for a response from the lawyer. yangsui, I'm going to assume for the time being that I'm in the same situation as you, and that the tax collected by Times Group was refunded at closing. Why did they collect and then refund it? Probably to utilize the money for their...

    I also received a 2010 and 2011 property tax bill. The 2011 is legitimate, however I also have an issue with the 2010. My interim statement of adjustments clearly breaks down my occupancy fee (aka phantom rent) into three items: 1) Interest component (based on unit price less any deposits) 2)...

    Did you get a letter from the "Municipal Property Assessment Corporation" demanding information about your condo? Like the price you paid, and its features. Is this legitimate? It seems pretty fishy to me.

    Perhaps legally we can't do anything about the false advertising of the appearance and amenities of the terrace. However, it just reflects extremely poorly on the ethics of Times Group that they engage in such false advertising. And regarding 500 Sherbourne in general, and not just focusing...
