Can I sue my condo board in small claim court?
In this Feb, the jackass tenant, whose name is Jay, left the window open during -20, and refused to close the windows. Had loud music every early morning, so other owners living in the condo building complained and condo board asked me to have him move out. I talked to him and brought the case to the landlord/tenant dispute resolution service (in Alberta) since he refused to move out. I had to go to the dispute service first before bringing this to the court. This tenant sent email to the proper manager and said he would like to beat him up since the property manager asked me (the owner) to move him out. I then told the property manager that I am seeking for moving him out, but the dispute service took 2 weeks to hear my case. Without my knowledge, the property manager hired a lawyer and brought this to the court even if he knew that I was waiting for the dispute service. The reason is that his life was threatened. The tenant lost in the court. Now the condo board sent me the bill, which is $4500.
Could I bring it to the small claim court? I was trying to move him out but the property manager (on behalf of the board as he said) just brought that to the court directly without my knowledge.
Any advice will be highly appreciated.
