An owner has added a special exclusive use by-law motion on the AGM agenda for the installation of a chair lift. The motion includes a by-law but there is no further information on the ‘chair lift’.
The by-law has not been seen by the strata committee. I understand that the chair lift will be used by the mother of a resident and be installed from the ground floor to their unit on 3rd floor. It is not for the use of an owner or tenant.
The building is 50 years old and the only stair well is quite narrow, such that large items like refrigerators are extremely difficult to manoeuvre – some furniture has to be installed over balconies as it doesn’t fit up the stairs.
The stairwell services 6 units. The by-law states ‘any necessary consent of Council or any other appropriate government or statutory authority being obtained prior to any works being undertaken’. However there is no commitment to provide that to the SC.
I am concerned that with pre-electronic voting that owners who don’t live in that section of the building will just pass the motion with pre-electronic votes.
Is there any basis that this motion is invalid? and what measures can we take.
