How is the length of delay determined in determining a claim?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from The Owners Strata Plan LMS 2262 v. Stoneman Developments Ltd. et al., 2004 BCSC 828 (CanLII):

The length of the delay is one of the factors to be considered, although even an extraordinary length of delay is not necessarily determinative of the outcome (Yablonski v. Cranbrook, 2002 BCSC 1875). The reasons in Teal, however, do not indicate how the length of delay is to be determined. The plaintiffs and the Proposed Defendants advance different approaches for measuring the length of delay.
