Residential tenancy matters are dealt with in front of the Landlord and Tenant Board. The LTB follows the laws and rules as set out in the Residential Tenancies Act. The RTA gives residential landlords and tenants rights and responsibilities, and sets out a process for enforcing them. The RTA also sets out the process for resolving non-profit housing co-operative (“co-op”) eviction disputes.
The role of the LTB is to:
- resolve disputes between landlords and tenants through mediation or adjudication;
- resolve eviction applications from co-ops;
- provide information to landlords and tenants about their rights and responsibilities under the RTA.
The LTB follows strict guidelines and procedures and if you are not experienced with all of the rules and regulations, it can be a daunting task. Let me help you navigate your matter through the LTB so that you can get the outcome you are looking for. I represent both landlords and tenants at the LTB.
