Doesn't need a licence...and he's probably in the country illegally and will be fired once his management company feels the heat....and he'll be blamed for all the CONFUSING accounting....while his management company hides the money theyn steal through creative accounting...

So, you work for a strata management company?
Are you lurking here?
I know many times the problem is just with the manager! Repeat that.
For instance, when you don't pay the contractors on time and refuse to pay late fees on monies owing... that's the council telling you to do that?
B.S. I could write a book on the games you people play to make yourself look good when you screw up and all the ways you manipulate things to make more money for your company.
How about when a contractor attempts to lodge a complaint...generally we are not allowed access to strata council phone numbers or e-mails. Alot of times we never get introduced to council members.
All of our correspondence has to go through the property manager. I have had information changed or not even forwarded.
So, your opinion will not sway my knowledge or years of experience in dealing with property managers and strata councils in B.C.
If you are so gung-ho to make property managers look good in the eyes of those owners and contractors who have been ripped off, why don't you push for a "Code of Ethics" in your industry?
I signed one for my industry and abide by it.
Also, you should use "you're" instead of your.
P.S. do you have "your" license yet?

Interesting too, that Baywest uses the law firm ACCESS LAW, where lawyers Jamie Blay (CHOA) and Philip Dougan are lawyers. The name ACCESS law tells it all....this law firm makes sure that criminals like Baywest and Dave Hensman can ACCESS any strata's bank accounts with impunity. God bless them all.

I am very pleased to read these notes from oweners... you are absolutely correct. The Strata Industry, of which CHOA has done nothing to benefit owners is no more than LEGAL Organized Crime against the folks who do not have much money.

"Contracting to stratas" raises an interesting question about the extent that contractors are being ripped off by some strata management companies. Given the sleazy characters in the strata management business who are ripping off strata owners it is not surprising that they will also be treating their contractors similarly. After all there is no Code of Ethics and Conduct for strata managers so anything goes.

Code of ethics for strata managers? Would these be the same code of ethics used by CHOA, SPABC, & RECBC? We can all verify first hand how "useful" these codes of ethics are.

Just look at Tony Giovani (CHOA)- he was recently involved in a court case in which he publicly used his power of position in an unethical fashion! Bullying strata owners, chairing an AGM illegally, calling for a secret ballot and then forcing owners to vote in public? Tony, Tony, Tony, your should have realized you are a figure of authority who could have made a difference but you chose to follow a different code of ethics than that published on your website! Shame, shame, shame on you!

A code of ethics within the strata industry…what a concept…

BLACK MONDAY AUGUST 1 2011

Today we remember strata / condo owners who have been abused by the BC Governement, Developers, and Strata Management Companies.

This should never happen to anyone. This is our day to remember the BULLIES, and ABUSER'S.

This is also a day to think about RICH COLEMAN who one year ago cancelled the Leaky Condo Grants.

May you rot in HELL COLEMAN and your Liberal Government. Never trust a ex cop, developer, Landlord, or a Preacher, Christian Singer Strata Manager, and all of the unscrupulous STRATA MANAGEMENT COMPANIES who are nothing more than THUGS and BULLIES.

AMEN

Dave Hensman, nice try : You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time. If you want to read the goods on Hensman and Teamwork Property Management of Abbotsford BC. Go to www.stratawatch.ca ..

I have read the comments on this topix forum and being a investigator I would suggest that any of you who have real issues to contact (CHOA) the Condo Home Owners Association or VISOA the Vancouver Island Strata Home Owners Association. The problem with Topix is that you can hide your identity and you could use other identities. CHOA or VISOA will help you and give you good advice. I can tell you by reading the posts that some of the advice is coming from a Strata Manager and a sleazy one. The person we have been following is a manipulator and a very good one at that. If you truly have a problem then get professional assistance, a forum such as this and pardon my expression is no more than a pissing party.

Tony must be in a three-way marriage with Bruce Friesen from Baywest and Philip Dougan from Access law; we had exactly the same experience at our AGM....the lawyer chaired the meeting illegally, would not tell us how much it would cost, threatened anyone who asked questions about Baywest or our financials, then FINALLY told us how much he charged per hour. Our incompetent strata council dropped their collective pants and bent over and asked for MORE, MORE MORE......the code of ethics for strata managers, lawyers and strata councils certainly was in full effect here....NOT!

I went to www.stratawatch.ca and read the comments and letters by Hensman. Hensman was the manager of our complex Alderglen. We had three owners who held a SGM to remove him. Hensman claimed that not all owners were notified of the SGM and Teamworks is still our management company. I must say that we never saw this so called $15,ooo.oo rebate in our budget, the only thing that was true was that we no longer have Hensman as our manager, we now have Nini Nestor. There are allegations that when Nini Nestor worked for a engineering company in Abbotsford she cooked the books and was fired. One other note, there are allegations that Hensman convinced our strata council to sue the three owners,for interference, which puzzles me as owner, because all owners have a right to ask questions. I have a question for those of you who have dealt with Teamwork Property Management. Why does Dave Hensman act like this, why does he fight owners. Why does he threaten to throw 75 year old ladies out of strata council meetings or to call the cops on them? What is his reason? It has been my experience that when someone like Hensman fight, lie and act in such manner that there must be money in it, or he is a psychopath. My sister lives in a condo in Vancouver, and when their strata council had issues with the strata management company, they had a meeting and came to a gentlemans agreement and the management company gave notice and that was it.
I ask all of you on this forum, why would Hensman act in this way.. what is he hiding?

Is there anybody that knows anything about Ardent Property in Vancouve Island and Profile Properties in Port Coquitlam? So, Ardent Properties is the worse a have seen with the way they do their financial reports and now this company hired a person from Profile Properties to be our property manager. She is the fourth so far and according to her she will fix everything. I don't believe one worde coming from Ardent Properties.

I think that it is time for a number of LMS's to get together and discuss a plan to have someone removed from the industry.

Kevin Green has just been suspended by RECBC and Croft Management is now gone. It was sold. Check out RECBC under disciplined.
