How does strata go about collecting for unpaid strata fees?

Collecting for unpaid strata fees is a very common problem for Strata Corporations. While it can be a very difficult choice to decide to file a lien against an owner, sometimes it is necessary to protect the Strata Corporation’s interests.

Once a lien is filed, the Strata Corporation has priority over even the banks with their registered mortgages. Without this lien in place, the owner can elect to file for bankruptcy, which will leave the Strata Corporation with fees owing which will never be repaid. The lender can also choose to foreclose, meaning that the bank will get their money out, again leaving the Strata Corporation holding the bag.
