  • Highway Traffic Tickets

    Open or Close

    Most highway traffic tickets fines are for relatively small amounts. However, is that the total cost you can expect to pay if convicted? Consider the consequences to your insurance rate. What about the effect of an accumulation of demerit points?

    Although opting to discuss a resolution with the prosecutor may seem the most expeditious route, have you considered whose interests the prosecutor has primarily in mind? What evidence does the court require in order for you to successfully overcome the charge? A. lack of knowledge can have unfortunate consequences.

    • Speeding;
    • Careless driving;
    • Driving while under suspension;
    • Operating a motor vehicle with no insurance;
    • Stunt driving;

  • Landlord and Tenant Matters

    Open or Close

    Landlord and Tenant Matters

    Did you know that many people living in residential units are not considered “tenants” and as such, do not have any protection under Ontario’s residential tenancy laws? Are you aware that an increasingly growing number of residential units are no longer under rent control?

    Whom does the law consider a “tenant” with legal protection? How can I know whether or not my residential unit is under rent control?

    If a person wants to assert their lawful rights then accurate information is essential. The laws seem complicated and, unfortunately for most people, time is precious and cannot afford the luxury of handling such matters themselves.

    F.A.S.T. can help you with issues about:

    • Building or unit maintenance;
    • Tenant and landlord rights and obligations;
    • Non-payment of rent and persistent late payments of rent;
    • “No Pet” clauses;
    • Eviction notices.
