Description of the private portions

Description des parties privatives

Following the recent reform on condominium insurance, article 1070 of the Civil Code of Québec now stipulates that "the syndicate keeps at the disposal of the co-owners a description of the private portions that is sufficiently precise to allow any improvements made by co-owners to be identified. The same description may be valid for two or more portions having the same characteristics."


The RGCQ invites you to consult our Tool kit to access the model for a description of the private portions. Using this tool, you will be able to establish the characteristics of the reference unit.


Please note that this document must describe the standard unit(s) at the time of the creation of your co-ownership (refer to the date of publication of your declaration of co-ownership).


Remember that the description of the units must be adopted by the Board of Directors and must make the objects of a consultation and ratification by the assembly of co-owners. In addition, we want to call to your attemtion that condominiums created before October 31, 2017, must adopt this description before June 13, 2020.
