Condominium living isn’t always sunshine, lollipops and rainbows. Condo corporations must sometimes flex their muscles to ensure the rights of all owners and residents are respected and the interests of the entire corporation are protected. That said, there is no prize for spending the most money fighting a condo dispute.
To help our clients achieve a fair, timely resolution, we use a streamlined process where each side gets a fair hearing and the space to present their cases in the most compelling way possible.
Our team has a deep understanding of condominium issues, and a long and established track record in virtually every type of condo dispute, including:
From devising the initial strategy to the final stages of enforcing compliance orders, we offer all necessary services and the value-added insight to identify possible solutions at every stage of the escalating process of mediation, arbitration and court.
Strategic coaching and support
It’s a fact that condo directors and managers are more frequently handling their corporations’ legal cases before boards, tribunals and courts without engaging lawyers for every aspect of the representation.
Reducing costs is important, but seeking advice and coaching from a seasoned legal professional can make the difference between victory and defeat. Short consultations and brief coaching provides valuable insight and help in choosing your corporation’s battles and strategies wisely, maximizing the odds of success and minimizing risk and downside.
Shared facilities disputes
Disputes over condo-shared facilities are more common, more complicated and more emotionally-driven than ever before. We advise condo corporations candidly and sensibly and represent them fearlessly.
Throughout, we recognize that underlying relationships between the parties will last for decades, long after the individual representatives are gone, and that divisions must be healed sooner rather than later.
The Condominium Act, 1998 requires certain condo disputes like declaration and rule enforcement cases and shared facilities squabbles to be decided by arbitration if they are not resolved through mediation.
As a neutral arbitrator, Chris Jaglowitz offers parties a streamlined process, a fair hearing and a deep understanding of condominium issues, to help ensure a just and conclusive result of important disputes.
