Homeowner Deficiency Entry

Within one year of possession of your unit, you can use this secure page to enter your unit deficiency service inquiries.

Southwest Properties’ deficiency service responsibilities will expire 12 months after legal occupancy of the unit.

If you have questions about your warranty, maintenance, or are unsure if something is considered a deficiency, contact pavilion.homeowner@southwest.ca for assistance.



Entries will be reviewed, assessed, assigned and a response provided within 24 hours of receipt when received Monday through Friday (unless determined an emergency).

Determination will be made on whether immediate attention is required or if it falls into the 6th and 12th month repair schedule. See guidelines.


This will assist you in determining what is considered a service deficiency and what is the homeowner’s responsibility.
