Lisa Mackie presented at the IREM B.C. Conference
On April 28, Lisa Mackie, leader of our Strata Property Practice, presented on Airbnb operations in B.C. at the IREM BC Conference – Real Estate Institute of Canada. Her informative and interactive session, “Bringing down the house”, was co-presented with Paul Mandes, Lesperance Mendes Lawyers, and covered the rise of short term accommodations in B.C. and the new challenges it brings for strata corporations and rental buildings. What are a Strata Corporation’s legal rights respecting Airbnb operations? How can a landlord prevent Airbnb operations in a rental building, and what recourse is available when these operations occur? What risks do these operations present to homeowners, Strata Councils, and property management companies?
