Renovating your Wilshire Corridor Condo – Make Sure Your Paperwork is in Order

If you are thinking of renovating a Wilshire Corridor condo, make sure you are ready.  Check the Homeowners Association rules and regulations before identifying your contractors.

In the course of preparing a condo in The Wilshire ready for renting, I learned the value of having a Homeowners Association to protect the residents interests.  These are some of the requirements which contractors must meet:

  • Contractor must carry $1 million in liability insurance.
  • Contractor must have workers’ comp coverage.
  • Contractor must enter through P1 to check in, and then take the freight elevator to the unit.
  • Although each unit is accessed directly from the elevator, the freight elevator opens on the floor.  Contractors must ensure that the hallways floors are covered during work times.
  • Carpet installers must place hard board in the hallways on which to lay the old carpet.
  • For any major renovations, permits are going to have to be pulled.

This may sound like more work than necessary, but as a Wilshire Corridor condo owner you can rest assured that your interests are protected.

  1. Jane, there is nothing like being protected today…just went through this with a contractor for a client she had been using for a couple of years that we caught stealing from her…good HOA documents are paramount & many have not been updated like these to reflect the current times..
