Affordable Legal Help Involving a Broad Range of Tenancy Issues Including Rent Arrears, Persistently Late Rent Payments, and other concerns!
Jorge Andres Steinmetz. B. A.. Licensed Paralegal provides legal services for Landlord and Tenant Board (the "LTB") matters involving Rent Arrears, Persistently Late Rent Payments, and other concerns as issues common to concerns governed by the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006, S.O. 2006, Chapter 17. With this said, sometimes when a dispute arises between a residential landlord and tenants, certain issues must proceed at the LTB and other issues must proceed at the Small Claims Court. Failure to bring specific issues into the proper forum may cause dismissal of proceedings. It is also possible that upon dismissal, the right to redo or restart proceedings in the proper forum is lost. Accordingly, choosing the proper forum is imperative. With other cases, such as commercial tenancy disputes, the issues are beyond the jurisdiction of the LTB and must be pursued in the Small Claims Court (or higher court) depending on circumstances and the legal issues involved and whether the matter involves less than the $35,000 per Plaintiff limit.
