Condo Ownership – Unit Owners don’t typically share a Common Position!
A controversial proposal to sell an entire Hamilton condominium building has been delayed amid concerns that a meeting of the owners to settle the matter would have violated provincial social isolation orders.
The delay is just the latest twist in a saga first reported in The Globe and Mail in February, that has pitted neighbour against neighbour and launched accusations of pressure tactics and threats amid a looming maintenance bill that runs into the millions of dollars.
Dr. Joy Ogunro, who lived in the building from 1986 with her mother (and inherited the unit when her mother died in 2017, but now lives in Barbados) says she has been suspicious of the plan and methods used to attempt to sell the building from the beginning. “All of these actions appear not to be in the interest of the owners,” she said. “What is the rush?”
