I own a condo in west Edmonton and for just about as long as I can remember, the board has collected a security deposit to protect against damage done to common areas during move-ins and move-outs. No problem. Now the board has informed owners that effective immediately, on top of the deposit, they'll also be assessing a $150 supervision fee. What this means is when a tenant moves in, I'll need to pay a board member $150 to supervise the move-in through common areas so that damage caused by my new tenants will be deducted from the deposit. Same thing when they move-out. What this means is that turning over tenants would cost me an additional $300. Failure to comply with this rule will lead to a fine. My understanding is that the board can implement a policy as it sees fit. For instance, it could decide that the laundry room will be locked daily from this time to that time. But the levying of a fine would necessitate a bylaw being broken and if there's no current bylaw to support their position (there isn't), the issuing of a fine is largely meaningless. My question: Can the board implement this rule without a special resolution?
