Townhouse ownership rules vary from strata to strata. They typically include the structure (inside and out), the land on which it sits, and usually front and back yards. The home inspections will vary depending on the strata ownership. It will usually consist of inspecting the interior and exterior of the unit, roof drainage and yard. A townhouse shares common property like roof, exterior, and drainage with your neighbours. Those neighbours make up the Strata council that decides on the repairs for the whole property.
A condo inspection includes a thorough check of the entire unit, to make sure that all of the major appliances are in good shape and are working to code. This also includes an inspection of any maintenance and service issues that affect just that particular unit as opposed to the building as a whole. The majority of the building’s systems are shared elements and expenses. If there are issues with these components, they’re typically covered under the condo corporation.
