Owners don’t have to do anything about installing new flooring and people’s complaints from beneath them

This is a common complaint. The common things we see / are issues are:

  • There should be a by-law obliging owners to seek approval from the committee before they install new flooring;
  • The committee is entitled to ask that sound prevention measures be in place – and that does not necessarily mean what is in the by-laws is what can be required;
  • The owners should comply with those reasonable requirements;
  • Any transmission of noise is then a matter of whether it affects the person’s use of the lot below unreasonably.
