Strata depreciation reports are mandatory

Depreciation reports are mandatory as of December 14, 2013 for all strata corporations.

Depreciation reports must be prepared by a qualified person and updated every three years, unless the strata has:
• four or fewer units; or
• five or more units where the strata exempts itself through an annual 3/4 vote.

Strata corporations formed after December 14, 2011, must file a depreciation report within six months of their second AGM.

What is a depreciation report?

 “The depreciation report identifies future costs from the buyers’ perspective that can’t be discovered in a typical building inspection,” explains Tony Gioventu, Executive Director, Condominium Home Owners Association of B.C.
