What is included in maintenance-free landscaping?

Can I plant additional flowers, shrubs or a garden in my yard?

One of the benefits of owning a condo at MODA is that all the landscaping is included in your condo fees. If you would like to plant additional flowers, shrubs, or a garden in your yard, written approval will need to be requested through the corporation first.

 

Is MODA pet-friendly?

MODA welcomes your pet, as long as they are no larger than 65 lbs and smaller than 26” at the shoulder. Owners are responsible for their pets. However, the Condo Board reserves the right to take necessary measures to ensure that residents’ safety is the utmost priority.

 

Where can my visitors park?

We want your guests to feel welcome, which is why MODA offers 15 visitor parking spots on site. There is also additional street parking available if these spots are occupied.

 

Are BBQs permitted?

All residents are permitted to use a propane barbeque as long as it is used and stored on the patio deck. So you can soak in the sunshine and enjoy summer’s finest moments here at MODA.

 

Can I install an air conditioner?

If you would like to attach or erect an air conditioning unit, a written request will need to be submitted for Board approval first to ensure the size and type of unit is permitted by local by-laws. Central air conditioning must be installed and upgraded through MODAby Dolce Vita Homes. The size and location of condenser units are controlled by the Condo Corporation and may require additional screening.

 

Can I rent my unit?

Yes! All residents of MODA will be permitted to rent their unit as a whole or by room. However, there are restrictions on temporary rentals, such as Airbnb or VRBO.
