|In a Toronto townhouse development, 22 unit owners are living in condos registered to someone else — their real estate lawyers were not showing due diligence, writes Bob Aaron.|
|Ultimately, the title insurers for the buyers will have to spend the
tens of thousands of dollars necessary to exchange all 22 deeds, and
discharge and re-register the mortgages on each unit.
|Despite the frequency of complaints I receive about elections and vote
rigging in stratas, I have yet to come across a case of proven voter
fraud in any strata.
|My investigations into such complaints usually reveal that the winners
are simply better than the losers at getting votes and proxies. While
it is certainly true that strata general meetings sometimes have
“voting irregularities”, those irregularities are usually small enough
to have had no impact on the outcome of a particular vote.
|Well, my experiences show that condo election rigging is far more common than owners realize.|
|If the election irregularities
did not change the results of that election in Peel Region, a condo
board's attempts to remove a properly elected director in York Region
shows the extremes that a condo president and the property managers
went in trying to remove a director they did not want on the board.

|Hamilton city councillors have a novel idea to ease the city's affordable housing crisis. They want people to consider living at the mall.|
|City council's general issues committee voted Wednesday to encourage developers to build apartments and condos at Hamilton's major commercial centres, namely shopping malls.|
|Why? Lime Ridge Mall is the largest property taxpayer in the city, far ahead of Stelco and ArcelorMittal Dofasco|
|Two things here. One; this is not a
novel idea; other cities have been doing this. Two; if Hamilton thinks
it has to keep a shopping mall healthy, then that is not good news for
independent street-front retailers.—CondoMadness

|Six residents of the St. Tropez condominium located on Manhattan's
Upper East Side, filed a lawsuit against two board members of the
association stemming from a rooftop facade collapse on 07 December
2015. The incident resulted in hundreds of bricks falling over 30
stories, and caused the evacuation of both the St. Tropez and a
neighboring building, as well as the closure of five city blocks for
nearly a week.
|The suit alleges that despite “the threat of public safety and to the
unit owners” presented, then-president Christopher Klein and then-vice
president Sandeep Patel “failed to take any concrete steps to repair
the facade collapse,” regardless of ongoing terrace and pool closures
and an incident last August when a brick fell from the rooftop onto a
parked car below.

|With the City of Toronto encouraging condo builders to include at least
10% three-bedroom units in their new developments, what are those units
actually going to look like?
really should look at the five floor plans that are shown this article.
It will make you realize that buying a unit in an older well-maintained
condo is the better way.
|The article should have
mentioned a rise in the number of fake food delivery persons, who carry
"food bags" who try to get into condos.
|The median household income in Vancouver and Toronto is a little less than $80,000 a year, according to Statistics Canada. CMHC would be the primary lender. (So a family making less than $80,000 or so will be left out.)|
