March 25th, 2021 by Celia Chandler

 

It’s been a tough year to be a landlord-side housing lawyer with a social conscience. Our tenant-side colleagues post horror stories of evictions happening by the dozen without tenants getting notice or benefiting from other procedural fairness protections.

What’s the status of your file?

November 2nd, 2020 by Iler Campbell LLP

Last week, we received a worrying email from the Landlord and Tenant Board (the LTB) regarding a specific application. The email introduced a new form, called Advanced Resolution Request, for Landlords, Tenants and Co‑op Applicants to submit. The LTB describes the purpose of this form is to “help the LTB understand if there have been changes with…application[s] after it has been filed”. Continue reading “What’s the status of your file?”

Is the LTB collapsing under its case weight?

October 20th, 2020 by Celia Chandler

As you likely know, because of the pandemic restrictions, the Landlord and Tenant Board (the LTB) suspended hearings related to eviction applications and also put the brakes on issuing eviction orders.

Landlord and Tenant Board Application Fees Increasing July 1

June 25th, 2020 by Iler Campbell

Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) application fees were scheduled to increase on April 1, 2020 but were delayed due to COVID‑19.

Effective this July 1, 2020, most application fees for Landlords, Tenants and Non‑Profit Co‑operatives will increase by six per cent. Application fees are increasing for the first time since January 16, 2017. Fees for items such as copies of documents, hearing recordings, orders and Rules and Guidelines are not increasing. Application fees must be paid at the time an application is filed and the method of payment for applications filed with the LTB remains unchanged. Individuals (not corporations) may be eligible for fee waivers.  See Direction on Fee Waiver and the Fee Waiver Request.

The LTB continues to accept and process all applications during COVID‑19. When possible, telephone and written hearings are being scheduled for non‑eviction matters and urgent eviction matters. Orders are being issued for these matters only.

Though news of application fee increases doesn’t ring well with your pocketbook (especially during this current climate), our team is still providing cost‑effective and high quality service to respond to your goals. Please feel free to discuss any of your LTB needs with us.  We would be happy to assist you.
