Customer Question
Issues with the board...

Issues with the board about EXPENSES and compensation from Tarion. I have contacted CAO. How do I connect with a competent Condominium Lawyers on all aspects of Condominium Law? Besides, the board has threathened me with legal action for questioning their behavior.

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the property located?

In Port street, Mississauga

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

What specifically? The board has sent me a letter saying that I am harassing owners, employees, management company and board members. I have tried to speak to directors of the board but they hide behind the mgmt. company. I wanted to reply to the board but decided not to write and elaborate. The board has done as they please for years. There are also issues of SAFETY too.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

It would run into pages. Rumour has it that a director got workers who did work in the building also do work in his condo. Furthermore, money was used from the reserve fund (I have received a stupid reply) when more important things need to have been done.

I do feel that you can give me a proper answer on the phone. I do not like the process of writing questions which I believe is slow. I need quick and detailed answers.
The issues are many and varied.
Just to mention a few: city passing a building as fit for habitation when there were myriad defects and deficiencies, Tarion compensation was inadequate, the board and management in cahoots.I have decided to proceed through CAO and use a personal live lawyer who will represent me when I am away.Please return my charges to my credit card. I do not need to use your services for. now.Thank you for your interest.Sincerely
