Re: Adding a floor to a condo building Downtown

It will increase the property taxes to the building thus raising the amount of money each other owner needs to pay through overall common charges.

Another thought (though do not know the JC legality behind it) i think you will also need to speak and get approval from the houses and apartment buildings to each side front and back of your building. as you will change their views. (i do know they make home owners do it for something as simple as a covered deck or additions such as a garage in back or extending front porches etc etc so i am going to assume they would require it for a top floor addition) but check with a lawyer on that one for local laws and regulations

how would it bring value to other home owners? its not a common area its not a public area its an addition to a private space thus not adding any value to anyone other than the owner of the apartment receiving the upgrade. for instance. if i add a bedroom in my apartment by splitting a larger room in half no one else gets any value from it other than me as i can sell / rent for higher rates.

Agree with Jaded.

You must check the master deed. then with the board and the rest of the owners. Even if you could convince them they need to understand by you adding footage to the building several things can happen. taxes will go up on both your unit and the building thus other owners will have to pay extra. in some cases special assessments will need to be done. which will cost money to the building as well as other owners. and if during the process anything out of order comes up the building will also have to pay for that. not counting the horrors of poor construction then resulting in losing property value across all owners.

not trying to be a jerk but other than liking where you live why not just find a bigger place in the area? i have had recent large construction in our building and people seem to forget that these are attached properties and the disturbance of a job like that is a selfish act! do you have any idea how long it will take and the inconvenience to others living in the building? not even counting the fact they will most likely need to shell out more money because of this.

Re: Question: Direct TV dish on condo building roof top

for any installs outside of your physical owned space / rented (common or building owned space) in a condo it has to be approved by the board and or the management company.

if you a renter should be in your renters handbook, if you are an owner. owners handbook or master deed.

easiest way is to look to see if there are any cables hanging down the side fo the building that should tell you right away if anyone else has a dish up there.

also it also depends not all building attach roof to top floor and even then they(top floor) wouldn't have the authority to approve or deny anything being installed on a roof.

just ask super.

Re: Top-floor burglaries

plenty of options and solutions for this.

try these.

for top windows (outside window) use this ... Lmwm86Uk8ACFScV7AodyToAwA

for bottom window (inside window) use this ... JC415uUk8ACFbTm7AodxGUALA

this will not void any lease as it is not permanent.
