  • Give prospective purchasers comfort in knowing the yearly Owners Corporation fees
  • Greater control over the timing of the Owners Corporation Fees (developer is less out of pocket)
  • Opportunity to register special rules at the time of Registration of the Plan of Subdivision
  • Opportunity for the Manager to work closely with the developer to form a better understanding of the nuances of the development and a smooth transition from construction to completion and ongoing management.  This leads to less post completion headaches for the developer.
