Are Electric Vehicles Charging Over Your Rights?

Article Summary: 

This article discusses the impact of new regulations under the Condominium Act, 1998, which make it easier for condominium corporations and owners to install electric vehicle charging systems (EVCS) on the common elements and assets of corporations. The regulations exempt the installation of EVCS from the usual requirements for changes to the common elements, raising concerns about the potential infringement of owners' rights. The article highlights changes in the right to vote on installations and outlines the procedures for EVCS installation by the corporation and individual owners. It warns that the new regulations may lead to less efficient and cost-effective installations if not carefully planned and communicated.
