Article Summary: 

A recent case in the Condo Tribunal highlighted the importance of addressing disruptive and aggressive behavior by tenants to avoid costly consequences for both the tenant and the landlord. The case involved a tenant who caused disturbances and violated various rules, leading to complaints from other residents and security incident reports. The condo corporation's governing documents prohibited unreasonable interference with others' enjoyment of the common elements and units and noise or nuisance that disrupts others' quiet enjoyment. The Condo Tribunal ruled that both the tenant and landlord were responsible for the disruptive conduct and ordered the tenant to cease the behavior immediately. Additionally, the landlord was held accountable for not taking sufficient action to ensure the tenant's compliance with the rules. The condo corporation sought legal fees and damages, relying on strong indemnification provisions in its governing documents. The Tribunal ordered the landlord and tenant to pay compensation of $18,239, signaling a potential shift in how the CAT handles costs and damage awards in serious cases.
