Dear Tony: Owners in our Coquitlam building received notice that we are being forced to provide a key to access our strata lots.
A bylaw is being proposed at our upcoming annual general meeting that will require every owner/landlord to provide a key to the resident manager for the purpose of emergencies, routine inspections, and service requirements.
The only service requirement we have is the routine testing of the smoke and heat detectors. This is always scheduled for the second week of September and owners and tenants are always provided with at least seven days notice for access.
The notice package has indicated that if we do not provide a key, and there is an emergency access, we will be responsible for any related damages to
