Most older condos offer a locker for each residential unit. In most
cases, the locker is on the unit's title and the unit owner has to pay
monthly common expenses for the locker. In other condos, the locker is a
common element that is for the unit's exclusive use.
It is now common for developers to sell lockers and the
owners can decline to buy one and if do, then can later sell their locker to a different owner.
In all cases, be careful what you store in your locker. Water damage is
another issue and if the lockers are in the basement or in the
underground parking levels, dampness and mould can be present.
Security should be a concern as theft can be a big problem. (See below.)
outraged after managers fail to inform him of break-ins

A Calgary man who has been living overseas is furious with the actions
of a local condominium building management company after his storage
locker was targeted by thieves on two separate occasions.
James Cowling says he placed a number of his belongings in the locker
in the condo building in the southwest community of Sprucecliff where
his late mother had resided.
In November, while Cowling was out of the country, thieves gained
access to locker and stole a number of his possessions and items
belonging to his mother. Simco Management did not inform Cowling of the
break-in and failed to replace the lock on the locker. The very next
month, the locker was pillaged for a second time.
