Section 21.1 of the Condominium Act is a proposed new section to the legislation. It will require a shared facilities agreement to be prepared and registered for pretty much any property that is shared, or will be shared (with another party), by a condominium or a prospective condominium.
This section is not yet in force, and the related regulations have not yet been prepared. But it could arrive any day (as part of the next phase of the amendments to the Condominium Act). Continue reading “Shared Facilities Agreements Will Soon Be Mandatory”
