Question: We suffered water damage. Three apartments, including mine, were affected by a broken hot water tank. The co-ownership’s insurer refuses to compensate us completely, claiming that our syndicate has paid too low a premium compared to the true risk insured. Is he right?
I plan to buy an on plan apartment. As I am intolerant to second-hand smoke from other units, acquiring a condo in a co-ownership in which my neighbors could be smokers is out of the question.
Question: How can I get assurances from the developer, that smoking will be prohibited in the private portions of the building to be built?
I live in a co-ownership where there are a few smokers, one of which is located directly below me. His smoke migrates into my apartment. I am worried of its effects on my health in the medium and long terms, as well as that of my spouse and those of my two children.
Question: Can our syndicate compel these smokers to install an air freshener in their apartment?
I am president of the Board of Directors of a co-ownership. A co-owner informed me recently that he is bothered by the secondhand smoke of a smoker who lives in the apartment below. Cigarette fumes are persistent in the complainant's unit, even when operating the air exchanger. There is also smoke present in the corridors of the building.
Question: Can we ban the use of tobacco in the private portions of our building?
I am the co-owner of a new condo. Other owners and I have recently discovered cracks in the foundation of the building, as well as water infiltration in the garage. The promoter is mute, and we have not yet transferred the administration.
Question: Should we refuse to elect our first Board of Directors, until the issues identified have been corrected? And should I sell immediately before other major problems arise?
