Monitoring abusive condo owners


Back in August, a decision was released on York Condominium Corporation No. 137 v. Hayes, which involved a condo owner who was verbally and physically abusive to other residents in the building.

The condo board was attempting to have Hayes removed, and had applied to the court to have her forced to sell her unit (which is very rare, as I have posted about here). Ultimately, the court decided that, in this case, it would not order her to vacate and sell her condo, because there were other remedies. You can read the entire case here.

A condo is a shared space, and is by its nature a form of communal living. Obviously most condo buildings do not have abusive residents, but generally being comfortable living in close proximity to others is a necessity of condo life.
