The First Step in Condo Ownership
When you find a condo that’s perfect for your needs you’ll probably arrange for a home
inspection to check for any hidden problems. Condo Check® has an eye for details, too.
We offer a similar service, but rather than check for rising damp or electrical issues, we
prepare a document review on the stability of the condominium corporation. Imagine
moving in to your condo and before you fully unpack, you’re slapped with a special
assessment for thousands of dollars.
The First Step in Condo Ownership
Condo Check can minimize the risks of owning a property and safely guide you through the process so you’re always in the know. Our document review is an invaluable service for purchasers as well as condominium boards and realtors.
This site has been designed to offer professional advice and assistance to condo boards, buyers, sellers and realtors. We hope you enjoy browsing our numerous resources and informative articles.
If you’d like to arrange a document review or to get further information, call 403-509-2462 or email us: firstname.lastname@example.org

More About Condo Check
After leaving a career in condominium real estate Bernie helped a young buyer to verify if she was allowed to have her dog in the condo she wanted to buy. As Bernie flipped from one document to another, to answer her questions, she noticed the young woman was completely overwhelmed and knew very little about purchasing a condo. Bernie recognized a need and the Document Review Service was born. She designed a written report and summary that identifies red flags, as well as good news and gives perspective to the operation of a condo corporation so buyers can make informed buying decisions.
Condo Check Supports Charitable Causes
Each time we do a condominium review, a portion of our fee goes to sponsor a World Vision child.
Currently we support three children and plan to help more.
