  • BC condo owner and developer are involved in a legal battle after part of the ceiling in the owner's bedroom collapsed. Carmela DiBenedetto, the owner, says she experiences anxiety whenever she enters her Burnaby condo. The incident occurred shortly after she moved into the brand new building, leaving her belongings still unpacked from nearly two years ago. When the ceiling collapsed, rocks and debris fell onto her bed, narrowly missing her head. Soterra developers made repairs to the condo, but Carmela does not want to move back in. Soterra has offered to buy her condo at the cost she paid, which was $825,000. However, Carmela is seeking fair market value for her condo, as she claims she cannot sell it due to having to disclose the ceiling collapse incident to potential buyers. A notice of civil suit has been filed against Soterra claiming negligence. Carmela just wants to be in the same position so she can buy something else at a comparable price, not seeking to make a profit. Soterra argues that it exercised reasonable care and attention during development and states that the concrete breakage only occurred in Carmela's unit. They have already compensated her with $17,000 for a hotel stay, offered to cover out-of-pocket expenses, and made a goodwill payment of $50,000, all of which were declined by Carmela. She has been staying in a hotel for almost two years, using her savings, and is seeking compensation for her ordeal.
