Balconies


For your safety: Never leave children or pets alone on your balcony.

These items are not allowed on your balcony.

  • Carpets: Wet carpets can damage concrete and wood and can inconvenience your neighbour ​below.
  • Barbecues: They are fire hazards.​​
Your balcony is not a clothesline. Use a drying rack to dry clothes.

Your balcony is not for storage. It creates a fire hazard. You will be asked to clean it up.

Your balcony is not a home for birds. Do not feed or house birds on your balcony.

Never throw anything off your balcony. You can seriously injure people below or cause damage to property if you do this. Put cigarette butts in an ashtray; you can be fined for throwing them off your balcony.

If you want to install pigeon netting, you must get written permission from your Operating Unit or Property Management office. The pigeon netting must meet fire safety regulations (for example: the netting should be made of fire-resistant materials).

If you want to put a satellite dish on your balcony, you must get written permission from your Operating Unit or Property Management office. Learn more about​ installing a satellite dish​​​​​.

Be mindful when watering your plants or washing your balcony. Do not let the dirty water run off your balcony and drip down to your neighbour's balcony.
