Landlord and Tenant

RESIDENTIAL TENANCIES

The Landlord and Tenant Board’s role is to provide information about the Residential Tenancies Act and to resolve disputes between residential Landlords and Tenants. Landlord and Tenant disputes can be frustrating, so leave it to the professionals at Frank Feldman Law to help you solve your problem. Our staff has years of experience resolving Landlord-Tenant issues and can help you with yours!

The Landlord and Tenant Board holds hearings concerning issues between Landlord and Tenant. Both parties have rights under Ontario’s Residential Tenancies Act and both parties can apply to the Board if their rights were violated.

LANDLORD APPLICATIONS MAY BE BASED ON:

Nonpayment of rent, late rent payments, Tenant willfully or negligently damages the rental unit, Landlord would like to move back to the unit, Landlord sold the unit, Eviction order, etc.

TENANT APPLICATIONS MAY BE BASED ON:

Received an eviction notice, illegal rent/charge, landlord illegally entering into the unit, etc.

The Residential Tenancies Act governs almost every aspect of the Landlord/Tenant relationship, including:

  • Starting a tenancy
  • Rights and responsibilities
  • Maintenance/repairs
  • Entering the premises
  • Rent amounts
  • Ending a tenancy
  • Abandonment
  • Hearings at the Landlord and Tenant Board

Renting any type of residential unit will be more secure with a Tenancy Agreement. A written agreement is not mandatory but makes it easier to prove the terms and conditions you agreed upon.
