Has anyone had any success with replacing their MR16 bulbs (in the kitchen and bathroom ceiling) with either compact fluorescent or LED bulbs? I tried a cf bulb and it just didn’t provide enough light.
The funding for the building assessment should not be divided by the number of units, but by the percentage of common interest allocated to each apartment listed under the Offering Plan. Under the introduction of the Offering Plan (pg 9. section 5) “The Board of Managers may impose special assessments in order to meet emergencies, contingencies, or other unforeseen events, which will become the financial obligation of each purchaser of a Condominium Apartment. These assessments will be levied in the direct proportion to the percentage of common interest allocated to each apartment.” The reason the offering plan states this is because someone in a one bedroom should not be paying the same assessment fee as someone in a 2 bedroom or penthouse. Based on the offering plan the Board would need a majority of the unit owner’s votes to override this.
Anyone having issues – my latest is $479!! I’m digging into this – but I presume something is wired up badly.
Initially my apt was associated with the wrong meter – and I was getting billed for an empty apt (btw – empty apt was $30/mth not sure how that’s possible) when they tried to cut off power to that apt – it shut off mine, and I was without for 24hrs. They got power back on (Coned blamed the builder and vice versa of course..) and alleged to have fixed everything. However today is my first ‘clean’ bill – the rest are a combination of undercharging, catchups, & estimates…
I have the same usage patterns as my old apt in the city (and more energy efficient devices) and that was around $100/mth. The only difference is the AC unit – but i don’t believe it can account for the balance of $379..
It pains me to still see all the ceiling lights on in the hallways during the daytime. Wasn’t there talk of putting this on a timer system?
I want to see our monthly charges increase as little as possible and if this helps, I think we should insist on this asap.
The AC in my apt is working in the bedrooms but not in the living room. I’m on the A line – maybe just a problem on that line ? Anyone else having AC problems ? I have not had any success in getting a response re this or my punch list items..
I have many outstanding items on my punch list – and I’m not getting any response – anyone else in the same boat ? This is taking too long – it’s almost 4 mths for me now..
This may be a big deal to fix – but it seems like it would make more sense if the door to the trash/recycling room on each floor opened out instead of in. On my floor it is usually open – and is the first thing guests see when stepping out of the lift! Typically it’s open because once there are few items stacked up the door tends to have to stay open so you can get stuff in – and the super can get stuff out. This has been made worse due to all the chute blockages -but still seems like it could be a good idea anyway.
Looks like – free pool party (bands) on Sundays & free movies on Tuesdays throughout July & August. Then a few other $ bands on various days throughout Jul & Aug.
Food/drink, lawn chairs are prohibited, and they are selling hot dogs & beer inside.
