As you can see by the photos attached to this page, the owners of the condos at and businesses located
in Trafalgar Mews find themselves in the same disastrous mess that thousands
of leaky condo owners have experienced.
It appears that this Gold Georgie Award winning condo is yet another
example of the leaky condo disaster. Scaffolding has gone up and
it seems that this Strata is dealing with the initial problems that are typically
found when the outer walls are removed.

Summer 2003 Update - Trafalgar Mews Goes Under the Tarp!
(Click on photos for a larger image)
After years of trouble and conflict on the Strata Council, Trafalgar Mews is going under the tarp and finally getting an building envelope replacement.
Previous information below
According to the City Building Permit Office, the work you see in the photos below was done without a building permit. According to COLCO's sources, the city issued a stop work order.
Trafalgar Mews owners had to hire an engineer to do a proper building
envelope inspection. The engineer has now recommended a complete envelope replacement.
In the four photos below, you can
see how the work expanded in the entry ways.
Click on any of photos
above or below to get a closer look at the damage caused by rot and mould.
These photos show damage typical to many leaky rotten condos.
The two photos below were
taken from the alley and show a build-up of fungus, mould, and moss on the siding
of the north side of the complex. COLCO Inspection Agents have seen this many times
before and these signs may indicate a more serious problem hidden beneath
the siding. We would not be surprised to see tarps soon surround this "Gold Georgie
Award Winning" complex.
There are thousands of buildings out
there like this building. Help COLCO identify the scope of this
disaster by reporting and registering leaky rotten condos on
