Building subject to a notice of deterioration
The law provides that a municipality may require that restoration, repair or maintenance work be carried out if a building is decrepit or dilapidated or if its decrepit or dilapidated state entails a risk to occupant health and safety. To do so, the city must send the owner of the building a written notice stating the work to be done to bring the building into conformity with the standards and measures prescribed by by-laws and the time limit for carrying out the work. If the owner does not comply with the notice sent, the council may require a notice of deterioration to be registered in the land register.
The following list, kept up-to-date by the city, lists buildings for which a notice of deterioration has been registered in the land register.
