Enforcing Restrictions on the Use and Occupancy of Units in Condominium Declarations and Rules

Sonja Hodis - Condo Lawyer, HODISLAW.COM


Having problems with condominium owners renting rooms in their unit? A condominium corporation can take steps to enforce the occupancy provisions in their Declaration or Rules. Sonja Hodis talks about her involvement in the landmark case of Nipissing Condominium Corporation No. 4 v. Kilfoyl which upheld a single family occupancy provision in a condominium declaration and prevented owners from renting rooms to students. She also discusses the more recent Court of Appeal case of Chan v. TCC No. 1834 which has expanded the Kilfoyl case and has given condominium corporations the ability to include occupancy restrictions in their Rules.
