Maintenance and Operations Updates

30 Charles Annual Unit Inspections 

Please be advised Annual Unit Inspections are expected to begin at 30 Charles on Tuesday, April 23nd 

Residents can expect that the inspections carried out by our Maintenance Technician staff will primarily focus on safety matters listed below: 

  1. Inspection of unit smoke alarm for operational status and expiry date 
  2. Inspection of unit fire alarm speaker and horn to ensure no obstructions 
  3. Inspection of unit front door closer to ensure operation 
  4. Inspection of unit window locks to ensure presence and operation 
  5. Determining the presence of window installed Air Conditioner 

A general inspection of all plumbing and electrical services will also be done. All unit inspections should be completed by May 16th, approximately. 

Residents will receive a Notice of Entry form, with the inspection date and a 3-hour entry window, either in the morning, mid-afternoon, or early evening. There will be no inspections prior to 10:00am or after 7:00pm and inspections will only take place Tuesday-Thursday. If there are any issues with the date of entry, residents are asked to contact the Residence Office as soon as possible so the inspection date can be rescheduled.  

The maintenance staff member will require access to all areas of the unit to complete the inspection, and if all items are in order, the inspection should be no more than 10 minutes. If an inspection item needs replacement or repair, such as an expired smoke alarm, this repair must be completed on the same day of the inspection. Maintenance staff will be asked to carry material stock and tools with them to complete such repairs, when necessary. 

For inspection items outside of those outlined above, we ask that residents take time to review deficiencies in their units and report them to the Residence Office, using the online maintenance portal. Any paint, plaster or floor damage will require the scheduling of our general contractor for repairs, and any emergency maintenance issues, such as clogged drains or leaks, should be reported immediately to the Residence Office, or directly to the on-call Maintenance Technician. 

We very much appreciate your patience and understanding through previous inspection periods and thank you in advance for your co-operation with all future inspections.
