Performance Audit


  For Condominium Corporations

  Performed by a Professional Engineer

  Meets Tarion Requirements





The Condominium Act requires a performance audit inspection of the common elements of the building, and at least one unit of every new condominium built in Ontario. The purpose of the Performance Audit is to ensure that any major problems in the common elements of the condo will be found before the end of the one year time frame for submitting a warranty claim under the Ontario New Home Warranty Program.

The Performance Audit report includes an inspection of the common elements e.g. the foundations, exterior walls, roof, doors, elevators, parking garages, and a survey of unit owners asking them to report damage to their units that may have been a result of defects in the common elements.

The building and site elements are covered under the Warranty Program for specific conditions. The program has specific dead-lines, and requires written notification regarding warrantable defects within the deadlines:


First Year

Warranty, covers general deficiencies, building code incompatibilities and design deficiencies.

First Two Years

Coverage for water penetration into the building envelope, health violations, safety violations and mechanical systems problems.
First Seven Years Coverage for major structural defects.

As a complementary service of the Performance Audit report, Ben Engineering will also provide the condominium with ongoing support, to ensure that the deficiencies are either being repaired by the builder or being paid for by the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act (ONHWP).
