Article Summary: 

The article discusses a recent decision by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice that found a condominium corporation could require unit owners to pay for the cost of repairing an elevator. The case involved a dispute between a condominium corporation and a unit owner who refused to pay the special assessment levied for the elevator repair costs. The court ultimately ruled in favor of the condominium corporation, stating that the cost of elevator repairs was a shared expense and therefore, the unit owners were responsible for paying for it. The article highlights the importance of reviewing the condominium's governing documents to determine the specific responsibilities of the condominium corporation and the unit owners in terms of maintenance and repairs.
