Frequently Asked Questions

The registration date may affect the amount of the condo corporation’s first Assessment Fee depending on the change.

You may be required to pay additional fees if the registration date is earlier than initially reported. You will receive a credit in your next invoice if the opposite is true.

The number of voting units is used to calculate a condo corporation’s annual Assessment Fee.

You may be required to pay additional fees if you are increasing the number of voting units through an updated invoice, which must be paid within 30 days.

If the opposite is true, you will be credited the difference in your subsequent invoices. 

You can locate this date on the first page of the declaration.

If your condo corporation was registered with the Land Registry Office on or before Sept. 1, 2017, you should enter that as the date.

If it was registered after, you can enter the date as shown in your declaration.

No.  The current version of the SNOC form must be used as of Oct. 14, 2022. You will be asked to re-submit using the current form if an older version of the form has been used.
Amendments to Schedules C and D generally indicate the number and types of units in each phase. 

Reconciling requires that sequences of units be added in batches for each level. If you need to add a single unit to a phase, you must do so in a separate entry as shown below. If there is a break in the sequence, you must start a new entry as well.

Use the auto-calculated ‘Total Units on Level’ figures to reconcile your total number of voting units. You will be alerted to this through a message asking you to review the information if the totals do not match. 

Example 1 – Schedule C:

Boundaries of the residential units: Being units 10 to 19 inclusive on Level 1; Units 13, and 19-29 inclusive on Level 2; Units 30 to 55 inclusive, and unit 58 on Level 3; Units 27-51 inclusive on Level 4.”

The user added ten units to Level 1, one unit in Level 2 and a further 11 units to Level 2. Each of these entries had to be recorded separately. Two entries had to be entered for level two because unit 13 is not in sequence with units 19-29. 

The completed table will look like this:
