StrataBlog

Welcome to C&C Property Group’s StrataBlog! This blog is designed to be a resource for strata corporations, residential property owners and property management companies in Vancouver, BC.  While the blog posts may resonate with a reader, describing situations that may be very relevant, this is not a place where we will offer advice to individuals or Strata Corporations on specific concerns. This is a place where a reader can comment with a general question or e-mail us asking us to blog on a particular topic of interest. We will publish comments that are relevant and constructive.

We reserve the right to pre-screen comments before they are published so that the intent of the blog is preserved. As always, we encourage community and welcome comments from anyone wishing to contribute to this strata and property management blog community and help us build a resource that is meaningful.
