VICTORIA - The Province is seeking public input through an online discussion paper and survey launched today that introduces a new approach to resolving strata property disputes.
The paper presents a tribunal model for review and includes details on:
- The proposed model.
- The role of the tribunal.
- The process involved to reach a settlement or ruling.
The approach would make dispute resolution services available to any strata owner in the province by offering an accessible, efficient and lower-cost alternative to the courts system and the current arbitration model.
The survey gives more than half a million strata owners in B.C. an opportunity to provide feedback and help shape the new model. Over 1,600 strata owners have already pre-registered.
The survey will be available until Monday, Oct. 31, 2011 at 4:30 p.m. and can be accessed at: www.bcstrata2011.malatest.net
