Multi unit development claim

In an appeal concerning a claim by a strata plan exceeding $1 million in respect of defects in a multi unit development, we successfully persuaded the strata plan to join the relevant builder and developer to that proceeding. This enabled us to preserve the insurer’s subrogated rights against those parties because the statutory limitation period for the strata plan to sue the builder and developer was about to expire. The parties worked toward a negotiated settlement of that claim with contributions from the builder and the developer.
