Unit Owners’ Responsibility for their Occupants:

Publication date:
February 10, 2022
Article Summary: 

The cases of York C.C. No. 188 v. Chaudhry, et al, and York Region C.C. No. 794 v. Watson, et al deal with situations where condominium boards and property managers faced incessant and threatening behavior from occupants of certain units. The courts determined that this behavior amounted to "dangerous activities" under section 117 of the Condominium Act, 1998. The units in question were occupied by the owners' adult children, and the boards and property managers received harassing emails, calls, and personal confrontations, including threats of violence. Despite receiving multiple notices, the owners did not take appropriate action to stop the behavior, leading to compliance applications by the condominiums. The courts found that condominiums must take reasonable steps to ensure compliance and prevent harassment, and the owners themselves are responsible for ensuring their occupants comply. Failure to do so can result in significant cost consequences.
