Summary:

In the case of Serratore v. London Condominium Corporation No. 10, the applicant filed an application with the Condominium Authority Tribunal (CAT), which proceeded to Stage 2 - Mediation. However, on February 14, 2024, the applicant informed the CAT of their decision to withdraw the case. As a result, the CAT closed the case in Stage 2 - Mediation.

Verdict:

Withdrawal of a case during mediation allows parties to avoid further formal proceedings and maintain confidentiality of settlement discussions.

Takeaways:

Withdrawal results in the closure of the case, saving time and resources for both parties.

Effective communication between parties can facilitate amicable resolution and avoid formal proceedings.

Recommendations: 

Encourage parties to explore mediation as a means of resolving disputes amicably.
Provide clear guidelines on confidentiality obligations regarding settlement discussions.
Promote awareness of the withdrawal option to parties to expedite case closure and reduce administrative burden on the tribunal.
