Legal Resources

Condo community members may face disputes from time to time despite best intentions. Here are some options to resolve them:

  1. Review CAO’s Steps to Solve Issues, which include tips on resolving common condo living issues before they escalate as well as letter templates that can be used to communicate with other parties in your condo.
  2. Raise the issue at an owner’s meeting or AGM.
  3. File an application with the Condominium Authority Tribunal. The CAT is a quick and cost-effective dispute resolution system that uses a three-stage process. Condo owners don’t need a lawyer to file a case.
  4. File an application with the courts to address disputes outside the jurisdiction of the CAT.
