Lawsuit, Poor Governance or ?????

 This complex is located right across from Masonville Mall and bordres on Richmond St and Sunnyside. Over the years these 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units have been sought after because of the location, price and the proximity to The University of Western Ontario.

 The 4 buildings at Masonville Gardens were in need of updating, be it the windows, lobbies, roof, electrical, facade and eliminating the wood fireplaces and restructuring the balconies and excavating the foundation around all 4 buildings.

 The complex will look great when completed however, right now there is a legal quagmire, see this link here in The London Free Press.

 There have been some sales over the past year or two and I have talked a few buyers from buying these, especially investors and parents for their children. What amazes me the most are the buyers who have purchased in there without getting a status report or their lawyers not thoroughly reviewing the report and allowing their clients to buy!

  An experienced professional Realtor would know about troubled condo corporations, the history and the challenges. That is not to say those challenges could not be overcome by a professional, (there is always a way), yet people make poor choices when spending $1000's of dollars because they will not listen or allow their bravado to overcome common sense.

 This complex has gone through and still going through extensive exterior maintenance with new roofs, windows and doors, balconies and the exterior recladed, wood fireplaces converted to gas and landscaping.

In turn, special assessments were required from each unit owner to pay for these neccesary improvements and when completed, even more popular because of the location.

The turmoil and construction took a toll on sales for 2016 but as mentioned, when the work is completed, sales will sky rocket again!

Going to Western & Buying a Condo in London?

Over the years I have worked with many families looking to purchase a condo or a house for their son or daughter while attending Western University.

Two of the biggest concerns are:

  1. Is the area safe and how close to Western?
  2. Will my investment be a prudent one and when my son or daughter graduates, will the property appreciate in value?


All valid concerns which I cover in this special report.
