CASE LAW

In Dubas v. Strata Plan VR 92, 2019 BCCA 196, the court upheld the chambers judge’s decision that the Strata Property Act does not require a supermajority vote of owners to authorize the strata council to retain a realtor to solicit offers for the sale of the strata complex, and that ss. 277 and 278.1 provide sufficient protection for the rights of minority owners in their requirement of an 80% vote and court approval of a winding-up resolution.
