In a precedent setting case, a Surrey woman is being forced to sell her condo over multiple complaints from neighbours and unpaid strata fines. On Tuesday, the province’s highest court has upheld a rare judgment that ordered the woman to sell her condo. The people who lived in the same building as Rose Jordison and her son Jordy say calling them the “neighbours from hell” would be an understatement.
Since 2006, the Jordisons had generated more than a thousand complaints, many of them relating to noise and abuse. Neighbours claimed the son stomped around the suite, screamed obscenities at residents, made rude gestures and even spat at them. Some residents had even taken to wearing cameras to record the confrontations.
A video released to Global News shows Jordy Jordison splashing water on one of his neighbours.
After a long legal battle, the court of appeal has agreed with a lower court ruling that said forcing the Jordisons to sell is justified in such extreme cases. “It simply looks at the balancing of individual rights and community rights, particularly in a strata,” says strata lawyer Phil Dougan. “We think it is going to be massive here in British Columbia.”
Dougan says they hope the ruling will have a deterrent effect for those causing trouble to re-think their behaviour.
