Article Summary: 

Condominiums can use borrowing by-laws to raise a substantial amount of money within a short period of time. The process involves seeking the opinion of an engineer, contacting lenders for financing, drafting a borrowing by-law, and presenting it to owners at a special meeting or annual general meeting. If the by-law is passed by a majority of all units, the Condominium's lawyer will execute and register the by-law. The security is granted by the condominium and typically includes a general security agreement over any equipment, assets, and other property owned by the condominium, not the owners.
