1.  Sutts, Strosberg LLP (now Strosberg Sasso Sutts LLP) and Charney Lawyers commenced a class action on behalf of all owners and renters of residential condominium units at X Condos I, located at 110 Charles Street East in Toronto. The lawsuit seeks damages for loss of use and enjoyment, injuries, replacement costs, and loss of rental income due to the failure of the defendants to install pressure-balanced valves in the bathroom fixtures in each unit.

2.  The defendants are Great Gulf Homes Limited (“Great Gulf Homes”), Great Gulf (Jarvis-Charles) Ltd. (“Great Gulf (JC)”) and Jarvis-Charles G.P. Inc. (“Jarvis-Charles”).  The class action is for breach of contract and negligence.

3.  The statement of claim includes allegations that the defendants represented that the features of each condominium unit would include pressure-balanced valves installed in the shower and bathtub fixtures.

4.  Since 2010, residents of X Condos I have experienced unpredictable fluctuations in water temperature in the shower and bathtub.  The problem with the water fluctuations continues to the present.

5.  On December 10, 2013, TARION Warranty Corporation released a Warranty Assessment Report which revealed that the problem relating to the water temperature fluctuations is the non-pressure balancing valves in the shower and bathtub fixtures which control the water temperature.

6.  As a result of the ongoing water temperature fluctuations, the plaintiff and Class Members have suffered damages including lost rental income, injuries arising from temperature fluctuations and the inconvenience of showering and bathing under these unpredictable conditions.

7.  We asked the court to adjourn our motion to certify the action as a class action which was scheduled to be heard on December 3, 2021 because we have reached a tentative settlement with the defendants, subject to approval from the court.

8.  A comprehensive notice outlining the proposed settlement terms will be posted shortly along with the information about the settlement approval hearing.
