Update: Some helpful clarifications from the LTB regarding evictions

April 9th, 2020 by Iler Campbell

As of April 2, 2020, the Landlord and Tenant Tribunal updated their website forms section to include the Request for Urgent Hearing Motion Form and Instructions for the Request for Urgent Motion Form. These forms are available to assist landlords, co-operatives and tenants in the event that a hearing is urgently required; for example:

  1. In exceptional and extremely urgent circumstances such as a threat to life or safety; or
  2. A serious illegal act.

The form includes a textbox where the applicant can provide details to support their request. An applicant should be aware that if they do not provide enough details of their request it may be denied. Supporting details include:

  1. Where the issue occurred
  2. Dates and times of the occurrences,
  3. Whether or not the issue is ongoing and who caused the issue(s).
