As we move into our brand new homes, we are mainly focused on what is happening inside our strata lot; most owners won’t know much about warranties and how warranties work. We often ask, "Do we have separate warranties for in-suite or strata lot issues?" or "Do we have separate common area warranties?" The answer to both questions is yes. In my last article I explained how the 12 month in-suite warranty applies. This time I am providing useful information on how strata corporations in British Columbia should address common area warranty concerns.
