A case in the Strata Titles Boards commences when an Applicant files an application. A person who files an application is known as the Applicant and his/her application is filed against the person known as the Respondent.
The proceedings at Strata Titles Boards consist of 4 main stages:

- Mediation: All parties (Applicant and Respondent) are required to attend mediation session(s) fixed by the Board. The matter may stop at mediation if parties resolve the dispute at that stage.
- Hearing: If the matter cannot be resolved at the mediation stage, the Board will give directions to the parties to prepare for a hearing and fix the hearing date.
- Post-hearing: The Board’s orders is binding on parties and may be enforced at the Singapore State Courts.
