Can a Strata be ordered to pay to restore a strata lot to paint ready condition where it has repaired or repaired CP units that were deliberately removed to resolve CP issues?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from Goch v. The Owners, Strata Plan NW 2153, 2022 BCCRT 299 (CanLII):

48. The strata admits that it performed or paid for repairs inside other strata lots. However, it says those payments or repairs were to restore parts of those units that it deliberately removed to resolve a CP problem. It says its actions were consistent with prior CRT decisions such as Manak v. The Owners, Strata Plan KAS 2116, 2020, BCCRT 567. In Manak, I ordered the strata to pay to restore a strata lot to paint ready condition where it had caused deliberate damage to the owner’s strata lot to carry out its statutory obligations
