A co-owner recently caused a water damage in our building. This resulted in a additional insurance premium for the syndicate's insurance.
Question: Can the board of directors claim the total amount from the co-owner at the origin of the incident?
I live on the 5th floor of an 8-storey building. The co-owner on the 7th storey uses his balcony to let the dog urinate and defecate. Unfortunately, the urine and droppings fall back on our balconies. The situation has been going on for almost two years. We sent him e-mails, but they didn’t solve anything. The syndicate has been aware of this situation for a year and a half but nothing is happening. The last few weeks the situation has worsened, because we receive several times a day drops of urine and it stains the windows and the smell is always present. I have to remove my plants and herbs from the edge of the balcony. This week I made a complaint to the City, which should send the co-owner a letter.
Question: If the situation persists, I would like to know what are my rights?
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?
Question: We have accumulated significant sums for the repair of the roof, which is to take place in ten years. As part of the sale of my apartment, can I ask the buyer or the syndicate for a refund of the contributions I have paid to the contingency fund?
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?
