New co-owners have recently moved in. They cook a lot, a lot, with a lot of spices and other condiments. As soon as it gets out of the elevator an intense smell runs through the entire corridor. It is unbearable. Question: Is there a regulation/section of law regarding this inconvenience?

Cette question est importante, car le syndicat doit à l’occasion agir en justice pour récupérer les sommes qui lui sont dues. Que ce soit par la voie de l’avis d’hypothèque légale ou par la cour du Québec, division des petites créances, le syndicat doit connaitre les rouages de ces recours. Les huissiers sont ceux qui exécuterons les jugements rendus et ont besoins d’instructions et d’informations du syndicat pour mener à bien leur charge.
The declaration of co-ownership is a contract that orchestrates and regulates the lives of co-owners, lessees and other occupants of the immovable. It represents the guideline for everyone who lives in the immovable.The declaration of co-ownership provides, systematically, that it is up to the board of directors to have its content abided to. However, it happens that people break the rules, in particular by a non-compliant use of a private portion with regard to the destination of the immovable, a noise nuisance and work carried out in violation of the by the laws of the immovable. Other examples illustrate the problems that can occur in the co-ownership, such as an encroachment on a common portion or the improper installation of a floor covering. Anyone who does not abide to the declaration of co-ownership is liable, inter alia, to a legal recourse based on article 1080 of the Civil Code of Quebec . This action may be brought by a co-owner or the syndicate.
The syndicate of co-owners must, to meet the expenses arising from the co-ownership and the operation of the immovable, collect from its members the necessary sums. It is therefore essential that the co-owners meet their financial obligations on an ad hoc basis. However, the failure to pay general or special common expenses (condo fees) is one of the most contentious co-ownership’s issues. The role of the board of directors in this matter is paramount, it is up to it to collect the debts of the syndicate. Unless this task is delegated to the condo manager. The syndicate must therefore take the necessary steps to collect the unpaid sums. A review of the options in such cases.
You move into your new condo. A few weeks later, a bailiff knocks on your door and serves upon you a notice of preservation of a legal hypothec of construction. He also served all your neighbors. Reading this document, you learn that a dispute remains unresolved between the contractor and a supplier (or subcontractor), concerning work performed or materials furnished that have not been paid by the contractor. Often, these problems are resolved through the developer. But sometimes, a co-owners must institute legal proceedings for the cancelation of a legal hypothec from his title.
Le phénomène AirBnB prend de l’ampleur au Québec. Cette plateforme peut faciliter la location à court terme d’unité de condominium.
Toutefois, certaines déclarations de copropriété interdisent formellement ce type de location. Mais certains copropriétaires contreviennent consciemment ou non aux dispositions desdites déclarations de copropriété.
Combien de fois les administrateurs ou gérants entendent « je suis chez nous et je fais ce que je veux ».
When you buy in a newly built divided co-ownership, a portion of the fractions of the building (apartment, parking or storage space, etc.), or even all, can be the subject of a notice of legal hypothec of construction. The Civil Code of Quebec introduced this hypothec in order to protect the persons who participated in its construction or renovation (architect, engineer, supplier of materials, workman, contractor or subcontractor) so that they can be reimbursed for work and services carried out on an immovable.
As a buyer, will you be required to pay the developer's debts if it defaults on its construction creditors? If so, will the amounts claimed be distributed among all co-owners? And what will happen if they refuse to pay?
2 août 2010- Si l’huissier de justice ne peut qu’effectuer des constatations purement matérielles, exclusives de tout avis sur les conséquences de fait ou de droit qui peuvent en résulter, son constat ne doit pas apparaître aux yeux de certains comme une restriction. En effet, la définition du rôle de l’huissier constitue au contraire la force de son constat.
