Landlord and Tenant

Landlord and Tenant disputes

Helping Landlords

Our experts help the landlords to evict their tenants and or resolve the issues between them in a very short time based on the applications before the Landlord and Tenant Board for:  

  • Non-payment of rent
  • Late payment of rent
  • Landlord requires the rental unit
  • Tenant’s inappropriate behaviour
  • Tenant causing damage to the residential property
  • To perform major repairs or renovations
  • Tenant failed to leave after giving notice or agreement to do so
  • Tenant failed to meet the terms of a settlement or Landlord and Tenant Board order

Helping Tenants

Our experts also help the tenants to relief from the eviction order and or get remedy for the wrongdoing of their landlord.  There are many grounds for tenants to make application to the LTB for rent decreases, abatements, rebates, or damages, including:

  • Reduction or discontinuance of a service or facility 
  • Reduction in municipal taxes by more than the prescribed percentage 
  • Imposition of illegal charges, such as “key money” 

  • Collection of illegal rent, such as a rent increase that exceeds the guideline or a rent increase taken without proper notice 

  • The landlord’s failure to maintain the unit and the complex in a good state of repair and fit for habitation and to comply with health, safety, housing, and maintenance standards 

There is generally no requirement to have a written tenancy agreement or lease in Ontario, although it is highly recommended. Where there is no written lease, the landlord must still give the tenant written notice of its legal name and address for service within 21 days of the commencement of the tenancy.
