Article Summary: 

This perspective, offered by an owner of a condominium unit, acknowledges the convenience and affordability of resolving condominium-related disputes through the Condominium Authority Tribunal (CAT). The CAT's expansion in jurisdiction is seen as a positive development to protect owners' investments. The perspective emphasizes the importance of owners familiarizing themselves with the CAT Rules, Policies, and Guides, particularly regarding requests for records that condominium corporations are required to keep under the Act. It is recommended that potential buyers review a Status Certificate before finalizing a condominium purchase and seek professional assistance, such as legal counsel, to understand key aspects of the purchase. Owners are also advised to review the condo corporation's insurance coverage and consider maintaining their own directory of documents related to their unit and corporation. Familiarity with the CAT process and retaining core records is encouraged to make the dispute resolution process more manageable for owners, boards, and managers.
