Q: I live in an apartment building, and Strata managers just drop by sometime wanting to take a look at the balcony etc. I feel like they should have to give notice like a landlord, but I can't find anything online about this. Can you provide any clarity? As they know my landlord, it sometimes feels like an unofficial inspection.

A: Generally, reasonable notice should be provided to the occupant before attendance for non-urgent repairs. Although there are no restrictions stated under the Strata Schemes Management Act. It would be safe to say that a minimum of 2 days notice is required, but reasonably 7 days with an additional 7 mailing days if the notice is posted.
