Article Summary: 

Managing costs and risks in condominium insurance can be achieved through a well-drafted standard unit, insurance, and maintenance by-law. The Lozano v. TSCC 1765 case highlights the importance of such a by-law in avoiding costly litigation. Components of an effective by-law include defining the standard unit, expanding insurance deductible recovery, waiving subrogation rights, and setting insurance requirements for unit owners and tenants. Maintenance standards can also play a vital role in preventing damage and establishing liability.
