My firm is replacing windows in a condominium. Is this type of exterior work considered work in a common area, and if so, must other owners and occupants be informed about the job?

Exterior renovations of multi-unit target housing are considered renovations of a common area. A common area is a portion of a building that is generally accessible to all residents or users of the building. Renovations in common areas of multi-unit target housing, such as condominiums, must be performed in accordance with the requirements of the RRP Rule.
