Knowing Your Landlord Rights and Tenant Rights

A landlord and tenant relationship is like any other legal arrangement. The landlord and tenant usually enter into a tenancy agreement or lease for an agreed term, the right of the tenant and the rights of the landlord are set out, and they both hope that the tenancy is quiet and peaceful. Of course, the reality of the landlord tenant relationship is often quite different. “My tenant is breaking the lease” is often the landlord’s complaint”. “My landlord is evicting me”, is often heard by angry tenants. To govern disputes between landlord and tenant, there is special legislation known as the Residential Tenancies Act (formerly the Tenant Protection Act) which is enforced in a tribunal known as the Landlord Tenant Board (formerly the Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal).
