How much does it cost to make an application to the CRT?
向CRT提起索赔申请的费用是多少?
The fee for applying for dispute resolution depends on whether your dispute is a strata dispute or a small claims dispute.
纠纷解决索赔的费用取决于您要解决的纠纷是关于分契物业纠纷还是小额索赔纠纷。
If you have a small claims dispute, the Solution Explorer will ask whether your claim is: $3,000 or less, or between $3,001 and $5,000. This is so you’re charged the correct fee if you decide to make a claim with the CRT.
如果是小额索赔纠纷,那么方案浏览器会向您询问您的索赔:是3000元或以下,还是介于3001元到5000元之间。这样是为了确保在您决定向CRT提起索赔的时向您收取相应的费用。

Limitation periods 时效期
You need to consider the limitation period for your claim. A limitation period acts like a countdown clock, and can stop you from bringing your claim to the CRT.
需要考虑时效期。时效期就像倒计时,把握不好就会失去向CRT提起索赔的机会。
If you think a limitation period may be running out on your claim, you may decide to make a claim as soon as possible, without trying a self-resolution option first.
如果您认为您提起索赔的期限快要到了,您需要尽快提起索赔,这时候不要选择前述自行解决方案。
