NEWS: Potential Canada Post Service Stoppage & Condominium Collections

July 7, 2016

For many condominium corporations, even the potential lack of mail service creates obstacles and raises questions surrounding the collection of unpaid common expenses. 

For property management companies who issue their own “Form 14s”, consideration must be provided to not only satisfying notice requirements under the Condominium Act, 1998, but satisfying the intent of such notice requirements.

The timelines surrounding the notice requirements are not necessarily impacted by a stoppage in service. However, an alternate method of delivery to a regular mail will need to be considered and embraced.

IF A “FORM 14” IS BEING ISSUED TO A RESIDENT OWNER, consider personal delivery (e.g. hand delivery by a site manager) or courier.

IF A “FORM 14” IS BEING ISSUED TO A NON-RESIDENT OWNER, consider using a courier service.

The “what, when, where, how and who” pertaining to the delivery process should be recorded, particularly when personal service is performed. If couriers are used, this detail is likely satisfied with the information on the courier slip.

Cost is another consideration, particularly when using a courier; however, this cost should be added to the total amount sought under the lien.

In the event that a mail service interruption creates additional obstacles for your other work, our office can take responsibility to issue Form 14 Notices on your behalf.

This month, the deadlines for issuance of Form 14s and registration of Certificates of Lien are July 18, 2016 and July 29, 2016 respectively.  However, particularly given the anticipated change in process, instructions should be received as early as possible.
