Something tells me the city will have a lot more leaky condos. Half the new buildings I see going up aren't even level.

I sold the last two I owned,and now rent. My rent is the same as strata fees,taxes,house insurance and cheaper as I don't have to throw in $$$$$ every 3 years to fix the roof/foundation etc etc.
It's not as nice,but I sleep well at night...

Level and leaky are two different things.

I also feel that there will more leaky condos. Lots of them will be highrises. Lots of them have double pane windows as the outside/curtain wall. When the seals begin to fail on those, the repairs will be difficult and expensive.

I work in the industry and in my experience I can honestly say the workmanship is poor quality and most of the workers just don't give a crap ....all that's happening is the foreigners with big money ( we all know who they are )
are getting richer .
Bye bye to middle class .
Rich get richer poor get poorer .

I'd never buy anything built after about 1980. Construction standards in this province hit the skids around the time of Expo, and they've never recovered.
