Day of reckoning due for obnoxious strata owner

Dear Tony: We are a 65-unit bare-land strata in the Okanagan. Generally everyone gets along very well, but we have had an obnoxious owner move in who has decided he can do whatever he wants. His neighbours on both sides are constantly his targets and the noise, constant construction and blocking their access occurs daily. We have tried to enforce the bylaws and impose fines, but he ignores us. We had a special general meeting on the advice of our lawyer to approve a court action to obtain an injunction, but the owners voted it down because they didn’t want to pay a special levy for the Supreme Court action. Is this a common problem for other stratas in B.C.? We are concerned that all these problems could result in violence.    Read the Q&A…………..
