It makes it possible to check the general condition of the common portions for new buildings which are governed by the Regulation respecting the guarantee plan for new residential buildings . This inspection consists of a visual examination of the building from a pre-established list of items to be checked (provided by the administrator of the guarantee plan ). Its purpose is to identify the work that remains to be completed, and the apparent defects and poor workmanship that must be corrected.

2. INSPECTION REPORT WITH GENERAL OF STATE BUILDING
The inspection carried out consists of assessing the building in a non-invasive manner. The report will be developed to help you estimate the costs of maintaining the building and a time frame for this work. The building condition report is essential to help you plan your contingency fund.
3. PROVISIONAL FUND STUDIES
The study of the contingency fund allows the creation of a short, medium and long term financing plan , so that repairs or replacement of common parts can be carried out. For this to be the case, this study will specify what the union will have to save, annually, so that the contingency fund is sufficient.
Article 1071 of the Civil Code of Quebec stipulates that the calculations must take into account the needs of the condominium, "according to the estimated cost of major repairs and the cost of replacing the common portions".
The study includes:
visual inspection of the major components of the building, in order to determine their physical condition and expected lifespan;
schedule of important work to be carried out;
the evaluation of the repair and replacement costs of the common parts, according to their useful life;
the analysis of the different scenarios of financial contributions by the co-owners, taking into account the rate of inflation and the income generated by this fund;
report identifying the various components that were the subject of the contingency fund study, the estimated cost of the work and the financial contributions required, depending on the scenario selected.
