What is Strata Dissolution?

  1. Given rising property values and increased densification, there is no doubt that strata properties will continue to be a significant part of The Greater Vancouver Real Estate market. The issue currently facing many strata properties is their age and rising maintenance and repair costs. In many cases, strata owners need to question if they should continue paying ongoing maintenance and replacements costs or alternatively sell the property to a development company.

  2. This is where our team specializes. Skilled at comparative market analysis and the analysis of ever changing economic conditions provides us with the unique insight to advise landowners of the true potential of their real estate assets by means of the highest and best use of their land. Should the decision be made to de-stratify we can act on behalf of your strata.

  3. Boasting decades of experience in the real estate industry with deep roots in the Tri-City area, our Team excels in navigating the complicated terrain of strata dissolution and investment acquisition.

BC’s First-ever Strata Wind-up Under New Law

Bill 40 lowers the required threshold to 80% from 100% for strata corporation members to vote to dissolve their entity and sell their buildings.

As of July 2016, unanimous owner agreement is no longer required to wind-up a strata corporation in BC. Owners of a Vancouver condo became the first in BC to dissolve their strata corporation without 100% owner support. It is estimated that many strata corporations across Metro Vancouver will follow suit and are investigating selling their complexes to developers.
