Article Summary: 

This blog post discusses a case in which a dispute arose between a condominium owner and the condominium corporation regarding the owner's responsibility for certain maintenance expenses. The condominium corporation relied on a clause in the agreement that required owners to pay for maintenance expenses related to their unit, while the owner argued that the clause was ambiguous and did not specifically require payment for the expenses in question. The case ultimately went to arbitration, and the arbitrator sided with the condominium corporation, emphasizing the importance of interpreting the agreement as a whole and not relying solely on the absence of language to support a particular interpretation. The post advises condominium corporations and owners to carefully review their agreements and ensure that any ambiguities are clarified to avoid disputes.
