Condominium living has risen significantly in Canada over the last few years. In fact, according to the 2016 census, condos represent one-third of dwellings built in Canada in the previous five years. Since the 80s, the prevalence of condo living has risen steadily and is expected to continue rising in years to come.
For condominium management companies and boards, this means an increasing amount of work and an increasing amount of legal issues. Unlike other types of housing, condominiums face a variety of truly unique legal issues that can be difficult to deal with.
What’s more, condominium boards are volunteers who are operating a huge asset for the benefit of others in the association or community.
For these reasons, condominium boards require significant aid and guidance when it comes to their legal issues. Fortunately, HLD Law is here to help. We understand that respecting the homeowners who live in these condos is essential, but we also work hard to adequately represent the condominium corporation to the best of our ability.
