Condo exterior balcony door stuck. Is condo owner or condominium responsible?

Hi there,

My condo balcony door (in Toronto) is stuck closed and it’s most likely caused by a hinge coming loose.

Is this the responsibility of the condo or the condo owner? I’ve read online but have seen articles on that exterior windows and doors are common elements.

Update x1: Below is what the declaration says. Is the exterior door part of the owner or condo? The wording is a bit confusing, but I'm like 70% sure it's saying the exterior balcony door is part of the condo's responsibility.

"In the vicinity of windows and exterior doors, the unit boundaries shall be the unfinished unit side surfaces of doors and door frames, windows and window frames and the unit side surfaces of all glass panels located therein, the said windows and exterior doors being in a closed position.



Thanks.

It would depend on your condo declaration. The declaration will state where your condo ends, and where the common elements begin.
