If a condominium owner fails to follow the Declaration, Bylaws, or Rules of the condominium, the condominium corporation could take disciplinary action. Owners and residents are obligated to comply with all valid rules. Should they refuse to do so, the board may institute mediation and if necessary, arbitration or, in some circumstances, apply to court for a compliance order. That’s the law in a nutshell.
Some condominium corporations are lax on their enforcement of the rules. Having said that, there are also those that take breaches of the rules very seriously. Owners and residents can start to notice the “exception” that is being made, and put pressure on the condominium corporation to enforce the rules.
Depending on the condominium corporation’s insurance policy, you may be responsible for paying the condominium’s corporation’s deductible, if a claim is made by you under their policy. But you can obtain your own insurance to cover the amount of that deductible. That is what condominium deductible insurance is.
