No Contractors Allowed: Court Calls Condo Matter “Urgent”

Article Summary: 

The Ontario Superior Court has ruled that allowing third-party contractors to enter a condominium property to perform non-urgent work in a unit constitutes a matter of urgency, especially if the property is occupied primarily by senior citizens. The court ordered an immediate case conference, which was conducted via telephone conference call, and the unit owners were directed not to allow any third parties to enter the unit pending further orders of the Court. This decision highlights the ability of condominium corporations to enforce public health restrictions on their properties, but they should afford unit owners with an initial opportunity to change their behavior before proceeding with an application to the court.
