Strata Dispute Resolution
The current Strata Act allows owners and strata corporations to take their disputes to arbitration rather than the courts. Do many use this quick and inexpensive approach today?
In late 2013 or early 2014, strata disputes will be handled under the provisions of Bill 44, Civil Resolution Tribunal Act.
Until then, arbitration is the quickest and cheapest way to resolve disputes and pre-arbitration discussion can assist in achieving that end and identifying issues.
I and other members of the BC Arbitration and Mediation Institute are very capable of assisting in this process, which can save your property managers and strata council’s significant time and energy.

- Degree in Real Estate
