CTSCC 1465


Mon Mar 18 2024 04:00:00 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)


In the case of Callaghan v. Toronto Standard Condominium Corporation No. 1465, A unit owner, alleged that the condominium corporation breached a Settlement Agreement reached in a previous dispute. The Settlement Agreement involved the provision of information certificates, revisions to certain sections, and answering specific financial questions, among other terms. The Respondent partially breached the Settlement Agreement by not meeting deadlines for revisions and providing written answers. However, the breach was addressed before the case was filed, and the breaches were deemed inconsequential. An award of costs was not deemed appropriate due to excessive submissions by the Applicant and the minor nature of the breach.
