Lease Agreements. We know how to help.

Did you know that any term or condition set out within a lease agreement, or tenancy agreement in Ontario is not binding unless the term or condition conforms exactly with the Residential Tenancies Act law? In other words, if you set out a condition that states that the tenant is not allowed to have a cat, for instance, and the tenant shows up with a cat, then there is likely not much you can do about it.

Factors like smoking, maintenance, unauthorized guests, pets, children, sub-let, parking, utilities and term of tenancy are just some of the issues that you should address with a legal professional before you sign an agreement with a new tenant. Not being aware of how the law views these issues can have a devastating effect on your ability to manage the tenancy, or to obtain an Order for eviction if you want the tenants out. In other words, not knowing the law can cost you a small fortune if your tenancy turns bad.

You should always consult a legal professional before entering into a tenancy with a new tenant. The Landlord and Tenant Board expects that you know the law, or if you don't, it's expected that you hire someone to represent you who does.

A licensed paralegal or lawyer is the only professional who, by law, can give you legal advise. A property manager, real estate agent or other layperson is not permitted by law to give legal advise regarding your tenancy or represent you at the Landlord and Tenant Board.

Landlord and Tenant Board

Landlord and Tenant matters are dealt with at an Administrative Tribunal called the Landlord and Tenant Board. Disputes between parties are decided by Hearings which are very much like Trials and decisions are made by Adjudicators similar to those made by Judges.

The Residential Tenancies Act, 2006, are the set of laws that govern tenancies in the Province of Ontario. Most landlord and tenant disputes are decided upon these set of rules as well as the Landlord and Tenant Board Guidelines and the Statutory Powers and Procedures Act.

When filing an application with the Landlord and Tenant Board there is no room for error. What you may consider an insignificant error will likely result in the failure of your application, significantly delay the resolution issues, and cost you a great deal more money.
