Panic in Wychwood Park?

By Barnet Kussner | WeirFoulds LLP | MAY 24, 2017
On May 18, 2017, the Ontario Court of Appeal ("the Court") released its decision in Black v. Owen. The appeal concerned the enforceability of the appellants' legal obligation to pay an annual levy as their contribution toward maintenance costs for private roads and other common areas in Wychwood Park, a residential area within the City of Toronto. The payment obligation arose under an 1891 Trust Deed (the "Trust Deed") registered on title to the lands within Wychwood Park.
