Practice Areas

Evan’s practice is divided between assisting declarants acquire land and develop condominium plans and assisting condominium corporations and unit owners with condominium related issues.   Evan’s work includes:

  • reviewing and drafting agreements of purchase and sale;
  • assisting with various matters relating to condominium plan registration;
  • attending and acting as chairperson at condominium meetings;
  • drafting condominium documents (declaration, by-laws, and rules);
  • coordinating the collection of common expenses;
  • negotiating and drafting shared facilities agreements;
  • arranging settlements among condominium corporations, suppliers, or unit owners; and
  • commencing enforcement proceedings against a condominium corporation or unit owner.

Recently, Evan has devoted time to assisting condominium corporations collect arrears of common expenses that are no longer eligible to form the subject matter of a lien.  Evan has found that creative thinking and a willingness to understand the positions of opposing parties is key to any successful resolution.
