Article Summary: 

The Condominium Authority Tribunal (CAT) has not yet released any decision dealing with expanded jurisdiction issues, including disputes related to pets, parking, vehicles, and storage. However, CAT has made several decisions related to record disputes. These decisions include issues such as short-staffed situations not justifying the delay in responding to an owner's request, redaction being required as a result of a record request exception under the Condo Act, and a board's general statutory duty to protect certain categories of record or information from being disclosed in response to a records request. Moreover, the right of the owner to receive specific records and the need to be charged a reasonable fee is mentioned. The rulings also mention the exemption for solicitor-client privilege and the confidentiality of settlement decisions.
