The following is a general description of the different condominium types and the features of each. Please note that Tarion will make the final determination as to Condominium Type.
Type A Condominium- Project has only Part 9 Ontario Building Code (OBC) requirements and is a lot-line condominium. Examples of common elements include the roadways, curbs, sidewalks, but exclude the home/unit dwelling and landscaping surrounding the home.
Type B Condominium- Project has only Part 9 OBC requirements and is not a lot-line condominium. The common elements boundaries usually start from the back side surface of the drywall of the unit and include the full exterior of the unit, including all exterior windows and doors (in the closed position).
Type C Condominium- Project has both Part 9 and Part 3 OBC requirements. Construction usually includes underground parking, which incorporates the Part 3 OBC requirement. This type of condominium is subject to Bulletin 19 Reporting.
