Important Notice to Managers and Administrators after Placement of a Lien

Time November 11, 2014 User Mario Deo Email Print Comment 0 Comments Share Link

We understand that it is easier to have Fine & Deo collect all payments and to manage the entire collection of the lien, and we do this to the greatest extent permitted by the courts. However, in recent cases, courts have criticized condominium corporations that have refused, returned, or rejected payments from unit owners. This has resulted in some court decisions disallowing the corporation to collect legal costs and interest from the unit owner.



Court of Appeal confirms condo directors can hold ethics review under by-law

Time July 21, 2014 User Benjamin Rutherford Email Print Comment 1 Comment Share Link

The Ontario Court of Appeal has upheld a by-law provision which empowers a condominium board of directors to hold an ethics review and disqualify one of its members if the board determines the member has breached the directors’ code of ethics on at least three occasions.  The decision can be read here.

This is the first condo by-law of its kind.  We blogged about the by-law on August 8, 2012.

While Codes of Ethics for Directors have found some currency in the condo industry, there has, to date, been no dedicated enforcement mechanism.

Fine & Deo is pleased to have been the Partner sponsor of this year's ACMO/CCI-T Condo Conference, which was held November 7 & 8, 2010, at the Hilton Suites Toronto/Markham Conference Centre.



The Fine & Deo Sixth Annual Invitational Golf Tournament, which is held annually as a tribute to our business associates in the condominium industry, took place this year on July 14, 2014 at the Oakdale Golf and Country Club.

The one-day event featured 18 holes of golf, on-course lunch, and an opportunity for participants to mix and mingle. It was a fun day for all, filled with laughter, good competition and great company.
