In Calgary’s early days, the CP placed liens on the lots it was selling in Mount Royal, requiring certain setbacks from the roads. The liens still apply, and to remove them from a particular property, all affected owners (hundreds!) would have to agree with the motion in Court. So the liens persist…
In a condominium, those (architectural) conditions could be placed on the condominium plan or (better) in the bylaws. In my opinion, the latter route would be better, as they are still strict but changeable. Soon, we may see more stringent requirements for roofs and siding to better protect against extreme weather events or provide better insulation.
