Early Ontario CAT Decisions Answer Big Questions

Article Summary: 

The article discusses the early decisions from the Condominium Authority Tribunal (CAT) in Ontario, which allows condominium unit owners to compel their condominium corporations to provide records under section 55 of the Condominium Act, 1998. The first five CAT decisions addressed important questions related to condominium law. In "Remillard v. Frontenac Condominium Corp. No. 18," the CAT determined that certain details in legal invoices could be redacted due to the "actual litigation" exemption. In "Berman v. York Condominium Corp. No. 99," the CAT held that a condominium corporation is not obligated to explain or provide additional detail in response to an owner's request for financial records. In "Mohamed v. York Condominium Corp. No. 414," the CAT ruled that the list of owners' and mortgagees' names and addresses for service is not exempt for privacy reasons and must be provided to the requesting owner. In "Micieli v. Toronto Standard Condominium Corp. No. 1753," the CAT considered the reasonable excuse of temporarily missing records and the owner's right to examine certain records before the Annual General Meeting.
