Each association has a different set of condo documents and R&R (rules and regulations).
Based on these documents, there is a procedure in place as to what you can or can not do in the condo. For example, some condos will allow laminate or hardwood floors, as well as tiles.
Others will only allow carpeting in the bedrooms...
Additionally, you might need provide the contractor license, insurance, contract to do the job,
samples of the materials to be installed. When it comes to the flooring - each association may have their own "pre-approved" sound proofing materials.
Usually, flooring does not require permits from the city - but there could be some exceptions to that rule, so it's good to check with the building inspector as well.
Hope this helps,

I think you definitely need to get it approved by the Condo Association, but I do not think that you need a permit for flooring. I am not a building official, so I cannot really guarantee it. But as long as you are not touching any electrical, HVAC or plumbing, you should be fine.
Associations usually want a certain thickness of underlayment as well as the laminate.... more
No I wouldn't advise on this place. There are plenty options in downtown Maintenance is too high and don't expect it to go lower. dues for a 1 bedrooms are almost $500 and lowest price is $219K I believe there far better deals in downtown if you are willing to pay this type of maintenance fees. this building like the others in the area will have problems holdingthis price, actually, 5 or 7 listings there have more than a 100 days in the market...... more
