Alberta Liberal MLA David Swann repeats call for NDP to help Fort Mac condo owners

Alberta Liberal MLA David Swann has issued the following release:

Hillview Condo owners are getting hammered again after suffering the loss of their homes to the Fort McMurray wildfire. They are now facing a $20,000 fee to receive info from their own condo board on the rebuild of their homes.

Swann stated “It’s absurd they have to pay $20,000 dollars to receive information from their own condo board. Alberta Liberals are renewing their call for beefed up regulations to guarantee condo owners information from their condo boards.”

Alberta Liberal MLA David Swann went to bat for these condo owners in the Legislature but received evasive answers from the NDP Government.

Swann stated, “Condo owners in Fort Mac and across Alberta are not being fully protected because the NDP is unwilling to enact regulations under the Condominium Property Act. This after the Act passed four years ago. Clearly, this is having real and very serious consequences for all Albertan condo owners.

“We’ve also demanded this Government create a dispute resolution board to resolve these situations. The NDP Government should be making low-cost legal services available to disaster victims who have lost their homes to disasters or major accidents.

“Alberta condo owners will continue to suffer while the NDP Government continues to drag its feet on these important regulatory changes.”

David Swann has sent a letter to the Minister of Service Alberta expressing his concerns on this issue.
