Tue Mar 19 2024 04:00:00 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)


Metropolitan Toronto Condominium Corporation No. 1371 (MTCC 1371) brought a case against the respondents regarding compliance with the Condominium Act, 1998, and the condominium's governing documents, specifically related to pet provisions and noise. One of the respondent did not participate in the case, which proceeded to Stage 3 - Tribunal Decision. However, Dutta and MTCC 1371 agreed to resolve the dispute through a Consent Order after the respondent who did not participate moved out of the unit. The Consent Order outlined various terms and conditions, including Dutta's compliance with the Act and the condominium's rules, providing future tenants with relevant documents, and making payments to MTCC 1371 for clean-up and legal costs.

The Consent Order provides a structured resolution to the dispute between MTCC 1371 and Poonam Dutta, offering clarity on responsibilities and obligations moving forward. It emphasizes the importance of adherence to condominium rules and the potential consequences of non-compliance. Additionally, it showcases the effectiveness of alternative dispute resolution methods, such as Consent Orders, in resolving condominium-related disputes efficiently.


Consent Orders can be used to resolve disputes between condominium corporations and unit owners, outlining mutually agreed-upon terms.
Compliance with condominium rules and regulations, including pet provisions and noise restrictions, is essential for maintaining harmony within the community.
Parties can agree to settle a case based on agreed terms, even if one party does not actively participate.
Payment agreements for outstanding costs, such as clean-up and legal fees, can be included in Consent Orders.
Failure to comply with the terms of a Consent Order may result in enforcement actions by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.


Condominium corporations and unit owners involved in disputes should consider exploring options for alternative dispute resolution, such as Consent Orders, to reach amicable resolutions and avoid prolonged legal proceedings. It's advisable for parties to seek legal guidance to ensure that any agreements reached are fair, reasonable, and legally enforceable.
