There’s more to buying a condominium than finding the right unit in the right location. Many first-time condo purchasers do not really understand what condo living entails and how this may affect their lifestyle.

The Ontario Ministry of Consumer Services has just updated its Ontario Condo Guide. The topics in the guide include:

  • Condo Basics
  • Is a Condo Right for You?
  • Buying a Condo
  • Living in a Condo

The guide also includes some very practical frequently-asked questions. The guide is available on-line at

and includes a link to the Ontario Government’s Condominium Act Review.
