Quiet Enjoyment

Although walls and floors between our units are built to high standards, no level of building technology can make these entirely sound proof. In order for everyone to live in harmony, we must all remember that we are living in relatively close proximity to one another.

Also, be aware that noise on balconies readily transmits into neighbouring units. Loud music, parties, the sounds of pets, sounds from appliances, footsteps from the floor above are among common sources of noise in condo-apartment buildings. The exterior unit doors and the stairwell doors close quickly (and loudly) to meet fire codes. Please take the time to hold them as they close to prevent banging.

If you have a complaint, try to reach a friendly accommodation with your neighbour before involving Ottawa City By-law officers or the Property Manager. 

Condominium Rules

The rules and regulations of our Condominium clearly provide for owners rights to quiet enjoyment of their unit, places the burden on the individual making noises to ensure they do not disturb their neighbours, and provides the Condominium Corporation with powers to enforce these rules.

City Noise Bylaws

In addition to the Condominium Rules, all residents and visitors are also bound by the city noise bylaws, which restrict activities that may disturb the peace and comfort of others between 11 pm and 7 am on weekdays, between 11 pm and 9 am on Saturdays, and between 11 pm and 12 pm on Sundays.

Please report any noise bylaw infractions to the City, as well as to our Property Manager.
