What is a reserve Fund Study?

In basic terms, a Reserve Fund Study or Depreciation Report as it is called in BC, is a report that assists condominium or strata corporations in understanding what they own, how much money they have, the timing of potential replacements, future costs, and, ultimately, how to pay for the replacements when they are due. These reports are primarily completed by appraisers, home inspectors, engineers or other qualified individuals.
