Included below are some asset management principles to consider in relation to statutory maintenance
  • The typical asset register of a condo building contains about 100 assets of which less than 10% are governed by statutory maintenance (elevators, pools, pressure vessels, backflow valves, fire alarm, etc). While there is a minority of assets that are regulated, these are critical assets.
  • The bounded assets should be set up under a contracted maintenance program that transfers the risks from the owners to 3rd parties.
