Appeals Court says that Jordison must sell her condo:
VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) Ė The BC Appeal Court has upheld a rare judgment that ordered a Vancouver-area woman to sell her condo after a litany of complaints from her neighbours. |
The BC Supreme Court issued a ruling earlier this year that ordered Rose Jordison to sell her suite in a Surrey strata development after years of complaints over the behaviour of Jordisonís son, Jordy.
The lower court found the Jordisonís in contempt of an earlier injunction to behave, and concluded the forced sale of their condo was the only appropriate solution.
Jordison appealed, arguing the court did not have the power to interfere with her property rights.
In an unanimous decision, the three-judge Appeal Court panel says provincial legislation permits the court to order a condo sale in extreme cases such as this where a sale would solve the problem.
The case is believed to be the first in BC in which a condo owner has been forced by the court to sell.
