Marina Del Rey Condominium $15 Lawsuits, Toronto

The Toronto Waterfront area can be a beautiful place to live. I thought all my dreams had come true when I moved in to my condominium 23 years ago. It has the most spectacular view of this city! However, I soon discovered that purchasing this property would become my biggest nightmare! I have now been homeless for 13 years!

This is a cautionary tale about what happens to a condo owner at Marina Del Rey Phase I, 2261 Lake Shore Blvd. W, who is forced to commence legal action in an effort to rebuild her home after years of continuous water flooding problems, mismanagement, neglect of duties, and bad faith displayed by insurance companies.

I have started this blog with the hope that I can provide help and encouragement to others who find themselves in a similar situation. Insurance companies and corporations have lots of money and lawyers to fight us. However, we have the power of the internet and the social media to connect, support each other, and exchange helpful information.

How to Survive Bad Faith Insurance Companies |

"Surviving a claim to your insurance company can be another tragedy in your life. In a fair world, you should be able to submit a claim and your insurance company will pay it right away. But, fairness often is unheard of if you submit a large claim to your insurance company. Hopefully, this article will prepare others for the long journey ahead so that they can avoid many of the roadblocks."

I found this to be a really good article with very useful information on how to prepare yourself for a major court battle!


  1. who is the developer?

  2. CAMROST was the developer. Apparently they built crap. This is what happens when a builder cuts corners. The poor quality of construction is evident when problems started to surface 10 years after it was built in 1988. You can tell be the quality of the interior finishes. Grey carpet, Vinyl flooring in bathrooms and kitchen, grey laminate kitchen & bathroom cabinets, white laminate counter tops, and white walls were the original standard finishes. Windows are a defective design and cause water to penetrate the walls and flood units below. Substandard plumbing = pipes and valves failing causing destruction of units and common elements. Builder failed to seal around the pipes and conduits throughout the building. So when one unit experiences a flood, the water travels down several floors wrecking other units too. This building is less than 25 years old!
