The CHOA Spring 2018 Strata Education Program

“What Happens Next?”

To register for a seminar please CLICK HERE

Course Content:  This season will focus on some of the most common problems that strata councils and strata managers have to deal with every month. Each seminar will review scenarios that will include group analysis for all types of strata corporations in the province, and provide participants with the sequences of how to proceed through decision making, establishing the proper scope of authority, voting on decisions to enable the council members or strata manager to proceed, and the options to proceed if the matter is not resolved.

 Topics will include:

  • Insurance Claims: collecting a deductible, who pays if the amount is below the deductible, recovering damages not covered by insurance
  • Bylaw Enforcement: scenarios that require fines or applications to the Civil Resolution Tribunal for enforcement
  • Repair & Maintenance: the duty to maintain and repair a strata lot or the common property
  • Determining Authority: identifying the proper authority and sequence for the council to proceed on CRT actions and collections
  • Council Meetings: how council addresses internal issues that relate to council members
  • Human Rights: dealing with Human Rights issues before they result in claims relating to accommodation and access
  • General Meetings: minutes and the authority created by decisions at the meetings
  • Alterations: understanding what type of documents you ‎require and the process to apply alteration bylaws or deal with unapproved alterations
  • Emergencies: how to determine if an emergency exists, who authorizes the response or repair, and who decides how and where the strata council allocates the repair costs and reports it to the owners

Note: Please bring a copy of the Strata Property Act.  A formatted strata plan and schedules of unit & voting entitlement will be provided.

Time: 9:00am ‐ 3:00pm
