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.
