The Price of Justice for Condo Owners
South-Side-1.jpgThe Price of Justice for Condo Owners
Condominium boards, management companies and managers with the aid of "condominium" lawyers, all paid for by unit owners, are using tactics to drain the financial resources of those who they should be serving. The patterns are clear and there for all to see if you are willing to take the time to look.
Many are afraid to speak out.
For every one that is courageous enough to speak up, there are a hundred suffering in silence.
 
Even more owners are "blissfully" ignoring reality.
Ignorance is really bliss - UNTIL - one day,  they wake up to huge assessments, escalating costs and maintenance fees and depleted reserve funds. Even the middle class can no longer afford justice.

Pro-Bono Students Canada (PBSC)
Please note: PBSC does not provide legal advice.
Our students assist public interest organizations and community groups, but we are not set up to serve individuals directly. If you are an individual requiring legal advice, please consult Legal Aid Ontario at 1-800-668-8258, the Lawyer Referral Service at 1-900-565-4577, or a lawyer. For $6, the Lawyer Referral Service will provide the name of a lawyer who will provide a free consultation of up to 30 minutes to help you determine your rights and options.
PBSC matches volunteer law students with public interest organizations, community groups, government agencies, tribunals, legal clinics and lawyers. PBSC students conduct public legal education; research pending legislation, legal issues and policy questions; draft policies for organizations and manuals for their clients; and help organizations provide legal information and assistance to their clients, among other projects - all pro bono for 3-10 hours a week. All projects require lawyer supervisors. Lawyers can assist by volunteering as supervisors for approximately 5-10 hours a year. PBSC welcomes lawyers who have pro bono or public interest cases where students would be of assistance. PBSC also runs the Family Law Project through which law students are trained and assist unrepresented people to fill out required forms in family court.
